UK Backward Running Championships

Held in Manchester's Heaton Park, the UK Backward Running Championships sees competitors negotiate a mile-long course backwards. Although it looks comical, it's a surprisingly demanding exercise and great workout - when fitness aficionados try it they never look forwards. (Sorry.)

Running backwards, or retro- or reverse-running as its marketing gurus would like you to call it, is a little-known sport in the UK but is somewhat better known in mainland Europe.

One of the very few British events of its kind, the UK Backward Running Championships attracts up to 200 competitors and is held partially to support local charity.
