Small (FREE) Race Preview: 2021 Perpetua Fat Ass 50k | 30k | 20k | 9-miler (Yachats)

A race with the words “fat ass” in the title is probably very appropriate to have shortly after the holiday season. I know that November and December are two months that aren’t generally my proudest in terms of fitness and nutrition. The Perpetua Fat Ass 50k / 30k /20k / 9-miler, held in Yachats on Saturday, January 9, is one way to kick the year off right to keep from having a “perpetually” fat ass.

The race is put on by Ardor Adventures, who put on a few races throughout the mid-Oregon coast (i.e. Newport). The event itself is low-key (bring your own water and fuel), but is sure to deliver with a beautiful course and great after-race gathering. The race begins and ends at Yachats Commons and continues out to Cape Perpetua via a few different distances. You can see a combo map of all the distances and their routes below. Stay tuned to the race Facebook event page, as new maps for each distance are posted.

Here are some details as outlined on the registration page:

Following the race, the Commons will be heated and there will be a local potluck for refueling. Everyone is encouraged to bring food and drinks for afterwards. Register here (though it’s not required). Results have been requested and the race director will be hand timing runners as they cross the line.

This looks to be a small and awesome local event with amazing people and amazing views. And its FREE!
