As always, these "Fat Ass" style events are open to any and all qualified comers; though screening will be conducted to determine one's true ability to complete the challenges, given their sometimes risky or arduous nature. We do welcome those who wish to travel on a small part of the course to join us for any distance they are comfortable with. All events are unofficial, FREE, no aid, no t-shirts, no awards, no whining. Quite simply.. group runs.
Anyone interested in joining us for one of the below events should contact me at Sherpajohn@gmail.com You will then be placed on this season's Fat Ass e-mail list and will receive informational e-mails accordingly.
