Participation is capped at 100 runners between both events. There is a shirt available to order for $15, if ordered by Feb. 10. If you register and are unable to attend, be sure to let Walters know since it’s capped.
True to fat-ass style, this is more like a lightly supported training run than a typical race. Water jugs will be at some places on the course, but everyone taking part should carry their own hydration and nutrition. There are also no restrooms on course; that being said, there are going to be some businesses along the route where you can use a bathroom if you need to (please be considerate). Participants will need to yield to all traffic, including vehicles; the course crosses some major roads including Farmington and TV Highway. It is run on the Westside Regional Trail, which is very hilly in some spots – especially at the race start and finish. The routes are simple out-and-backs.
When: Monday, February 29, 2016
What time: 7a, but Walters will allow early starts – be sure to contact him to work out details.
Where: Murray Scholls Park/Westside Regional Trail. Park by the Murray Scholls 24 Hour Fitness; start line is near the tennis courts. There is a good map on the race website here. There is a runner-friendly Starbucks in this shopping center – but at the other end, at the corner of Murray and Scholls.
