Running has many faces and easily adapts to almost every situation. The Covid-19 Pandemic has leveraged one of the most quirky, but also challenging race formats ever known: Backyard Ultras.
Stephan Wieser has created a wonderful short film about such a special event, and it is out now for you to watch.
It was shot in June 2021 at the unofficial Simssee Backyard Ultra aka Beyondyard organized by Willpower Athlete Acus Fnc. While everyone else was still complaining about cancelled races, he simply invited a couple of friends to run on a 6.7 km route around a beautiful lake in the Bavarian Hinterland. It was a non-competitive, very heartfelt and rewarding weekend for everyone. One we’re all going to remember.
