2019 – THE HILLS OF TUCHENG

Hills of Tucheng

In 2019, Explore Your Backyard returned to the hills of Tucheng. The long course was expanded to 25km, the middle course expanded to 13km, and the fun run/hike was 7km.

The 25km course’s new “Loop of Happiness” was described as challenging.
The 13km was described as the perfect combo of technical climbs while still being quite a fast race.
We were really happy to see a great number of young runners participate in the 7km course.
