Aug 9th, 2021 | Mathias Eichler

Alright, here are the official results of the 2021 Little Backyard Adventure races. Again sorry it took us a bit to get it all together. Next year we can hopefully have a podium ceremony again and gather and cheer. You all had an incredible race and should be proud of you!

Your LBA Race Guide

Jul 27th, 2021 | Mathias Eichler

All three race distances will start at the same time at 8am!

Here it is. Your pre race email you’ve been waiting for!

We are just four days away from the big race day and I’m here to tell you we are ready to rock and are super excited to be able to put on the Little Backyard Adventure race again and welcome you all back to LBA park.

Here are all the important details you need to know:

Just 3 Weeks to go

Jul 8th, 2021 | Mathias Eichler

You ready?

Folks who joined me on one of the orientation runs for the Little Backyard Adventure have seen and experienced the new course route already. Yes, the big hill has been taken out, but we found plenty of fun new twisty singletrack. And! The route is now closer to 4 miles. Multiply this up, if you come and run the 3 or 5 loop course.

Practical Info: Will soon send out an email with all the final details. But yes, we’ll have an aid station with all the supplies you’ll expect to make this race fun.

Volunteers: Don’t feel like running this year? We definitely could use a few more volunteers on race day. Let me know and I will put you on the list and get back to you. 

Any other questions: Please feel free to reach out with any questions you might have at

Cancelling Race #3

Aug 26th, 2020 | Mathias Eichler

Today I made the decision to cancel the last of the 3 ‘real’, not virtual races, we had scheduled for the Olympia area. Rock Candy Mountain Run was supposed to happen September 26th, 2020 and well, it’s not. No need to beat around the bush, we all know why and we all know why it sucks.

Attention: Prizes are Shipping

Aug 21st, 2020 | Mathias Eichler

Watch your mailboxes, folks. We got everything shipped out this week.
