The concept "BACK YARD / Last man standing" is simple:
- run at 7km/hour as long as possible, until there is only one runner left who is then declared the winner.
- The exact pace is 6,704km/hour, which is the exact pace to cover 100 miles in 24 hours (160.4 km/ 24h)
o all the riders start together for a 6,704km loop, they have a maximum of 1 hour to do it and refuel.
o one hour later a new start is given for the same loop to be made in 1 hour maximum and refuel.
o this as long as it takes until there is only 1 rider left who will then be declared the winner....
- The riders arriving early benefiting from this advance to refuel, rest, sleep a few minutes, and show up again at the start for the new loop at time H. There is therefore a whole strategy of speed or rest to build for the riders... Running at 7km/h is a relatively accessible performance, so the race is both mental and physical...
➡️ Record :
- At this "game", the Swede Johan STEENE holds the best world performance: = 455km = 68h = 2 days and 17h, followed only 1 lap later by the record of the best woman, Courtney Dauwalter.
