Backyard Ultra: UK National / Satellite World Champs

I'm super excited to announce that I've been selected to represent the UK in the Backyard Ultra National Championships. ๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Starting on Saturday 15th October, I will line up within the corral alongside the 14 best Backyard Ultra athletes from the UK based on performances over the last 12-months. ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽฝ

The winner of this race will qualify for The World Championships at Big's Backyard Ultra. Big's is the original backyard ultra, invented by Gary "Lazarus Lake" Cantrell of Bell Buckle, Tennessee. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ ๐Ÿฅƒ

The task is simple on paper. Run a 4.167-mile loop every hour. You are eliminated if you fail to complete a loop in an hour. Sadly, it's not run on paper. It's run on trails hour after hour after hour after hour... ๐ŸŒฒ ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

The UK National Championship will be streamed around the world with other countries running their own National Championships. The team who is still racing after all the other teams have stopped will be crowned the Satellite World Champions. ๐Ÿ‘‘ ๐ŸŒ

With this unexpected but exciting news, I can confirm this will be this year's Smilinggg Samaritans fundraiser. ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿซ‚

Knowing we are supporting such an incredible charity will definitely help spur me on to new levels when the going gets tough. ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿ’

Steps ๐Ÿ‘ฃ + Smiles ๐Ÿค—

Keep #Smilinggg ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿซถ
