POST RACE LUNCH

We started Explore Your Backyard in 2015 with the simple goal of helping the citizens of Taipei explore the abundant hidden natural beauty in and around our little city. That goal continues and we are happy to see more and more runners and hikers join us in our little adventure. With every new year we strive to make the race MORE CHALLENGING for the badasses and aspiring badasses who join, MORE FUN for the more casual runners, and MORE GREEN both in the way we manage the event and our message of moving towards more veggie diet.
Explore Your Backyard 2020 is heading to the Hills of Neihu and we promise to bring you a truly special event. We hope to see you there!!!
