Our annual Fat Ass/Half Ass (50/25 km) is going virtual this year! This event is not an official race. It’s more like a group run with an aide station. No aide stations, and no groups for 2020, but you can still start working off those Christmas calories! Run anytime, any day between December 26 and Jan 2. See link for route map below. Do one loop of 25 km or two for 50 for good measure. Send us a photo of your GPS device showing the time, and mileage. We’ll tally and post the results. No fee, but donations to happily accepted.
