The Punk Panther version of a Backyard Ultra, Panther Takes the Hindmost follows similar rules to other elimination races except every runner will have the opportunity to complete at least 52km before elimination .
After the 4 qualifying laps around a 10.5km trail, each subsequent lap sees the person finishing last being eliminated until the final three face off in a battle to be the last runner standing.
No one will be allowed to start on a new elimination lap until all the runners are home from the previous lap and one is eliminated.
This will continue until there are just three runners left. They will then be allowed to continue until there is only one left.
The start will be from a car park, so you can rest up and refill in your car between laps. There are also public toilets available throughout the race.
This race also has ITRA points, if you complete the following number of laps you will be credited with points as below.
Race results are based on distance completed first, then time. Your time is calculated on your running time and not race time. (It is possible to finish ahead of a quicker runner!)
ITRA results will be posted for the time you complete furthest out of 3 laps, 5 laps, 8 laps, 12 laps, 14 laps and 18 laps. This means for ITRA there are 6 races.
Car Park: Swinsty/Fewston Car Park, North Lane, LS21 2NP
Registration: From 8.30am at the car park.
Start: from 09:00, you may start later if you wish, but you must complete four 10km laps by 15:25, when you have finished 4 laps you must rest until the elimination laps start.
Full Rules. (Subject to change at Race Director’s discretion!)
There is no kit requirement, other than you should have a mobile phone on you in case of emergencies or to notify of a retirement. Those expecting to run into the night should have a head torch in their kit (you don’t have to run with it in daylight hours).
Any questions – ASK!
