Immense congratulations to Johan Steene, 2018 champion & new record holder at the Big Dog Backyard Ultra with 68 laps - 283 miles! Nearly 3 full days of running almost non-stop with just small breaks at the end of each loop.

Incredible effort and congratulations to Courtney Dauwalter as second-to-last person standing with 67 laps - 279 miles. Gavin Woody also an incredible effort with 65 laps - 270 miles. All great characters and mindsets from start to finish!

Johan nearly didn’t make it to the start as his flight returned to Sweden after making it half way across the Atlantic. He ran a much more strategic race this year from the start; conserving the tanks. But nevertheless, impressive to likely experience two additional days of lack of sleep prior to the start as well as a last minute drive in a rental car from the D.C. airport to TN. I first met Johan at the 24 Hour World Championship where he placed top 3 running over 160 plus miles. Like Courtney, Johan is one of the friendliest but also competitive runners you’ll ever meet.

Courtney proves that a women can be every bit of a fierce competitor with any man. She willed herself to continue from the start to finish nearly unflinching. She embodies an unwavering positive spirit and smiled for perhaps 90% of the event. She was almost the last woman standing in what is traditionally called a last man standing event. It’s definitely last person standing now.

Gavin was probably the biggest surprise for me. I thought Guillermo, Courtney and Johan would be the final three. Guillermo went out with an injury (looks to recover). Gavin shaped his mental resolve in some of the world’s coldest footraces like the Arrowhead 135. That solitude and harsh environment training serves extremely well in an event like Bigs. The cold weather extreme ultra shapes a tough group of ultra specialists.

Absolute congratulations to the three!

Laz continues to show his wizardry for poetry & creating races that pull at peoples’s hearts. The lore of the race continues to grow and even more will wish to answer the call or the first bell next fall. What was also new this year was the number of runners who survived pass 100, 150 and 200 miles. #BigBackyardUltra IRun4Ultra U.S. National 24 Hour Running Team
