Our hope is to make this event totally self-supporting. In other words, do all of the organization beforehand and also participate. This would be an impossible dream without a lot of behind the scenes help.

Show up to the post-run get-together and tell the hostess you're a Fat Ass. Owners Kelly and Lucie have promised to buy you a beer! There may even be some other prizes.

Rick is our official cartographer and current XTC record holder for running the farthest off-course. Thanks for the great map, Rick. Hopefully you won't need it next time!

Sibylle Tinsel - Club Fat Ass - www.ClubFatAss.com
Club Fat Ass helps the race with web hosting, online registration and coaches us on how to host a safe, fun, environmentally-friendly event.

Believe it or not, it takes a lot of time and hard work to put on a free, loosely-organized event. Many thanks to everyone who helped refine, measure and pre-run the course, all who offered feedback on the course description and advice for improving the event. While we promise no aid, thank you in advance to our family members, friends and other event supporters who came out on race day with a few surprises.
