Fat Ass 50k
31 January 2015
The 50k will start at 8:00 am 31 January 2015
Like most fat ass events, there will be no fees, no awards, no t-shirts and no whining. It is not a race and every person is responsible for their own safety. We do plan to have some minimal
aid out there at a couple of points. Water bottles or belts are required along with a food pack. However, last year folks brought some snacks for the finish which was very nice.
Also, it's possible that there will be no one at the finish line when you finish.
We will only be taking 75 entries and there is NO waiting list. Entry will be first come, first serve via this email address firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be conducted on the All American Trail near Fort Bragg, NC which is open to the public.
Here is the link to the All American Trail but please note that it is NOT a regularly updated website.
There is a very small parking lot at the Raeford/Vass Rd. trailhead. Please carpool if you can.
You cannot park on the shoulder of the road on military
property, your car will be towed.
We plan to have a finishers sheet at start/finish area so when you get through, fill in your time and distance for the results.
We are starting at the Raeford/Vass Rd.
parking lot and
running to the 21.5 mile marker in Moore County and then back for about 32 miles
The trail is marked every 1/2 mile so you may run as much or as little as you like. It's an out and back course. There are no really "major" hills and you need to be prepared to be on your own at points.
