Fat-Ass Events

SPRINGLETRACK – first or second weekend in April

THE BONTICOU MILE – May 24

FALL BACK – November 19

FAT ASS is the name given to a series of low key runs that are frequented by experienced runners & hikers and characterized by the phrase “No Fees, No Awards, No Aid, No Wimps”. Yes, the runs are totally free to enter and are put on by passionate runners who are also running.  Because the runs are not races in any sense, there is no guarantee of anything other than a course to run (although maps and directions may not provided). There are no course marshalls, and little to no course markers, and you should not expect any aid either. They are an exercise in self-help, and as such experienced runners only should come and join in – they are not intended for beginning runners.

FAT ASS runs are not running races as such, and they are not public events. It’s more like a fun day out. Some people may record times but this is not the prime objective.  If you are looking for a running race then there are heaps of real ones to choose from elsewhere.
