HURL, your hometown trail running enthusiasts invite you to share our love of trails by joining us for the 2021 HURL Fat Ass Event. Due to the continued pandemic the 2021 Fat Ass is going virtual with a full month to complete his disorganized event.
Fat Ass events are in the grand tradition of trail runs being relaxed, low key, and loosely organized adventure runs rather than high pressure, competitive races. In this tradition, there will be no entry fees, no support, and no formal timing. You are responsible for yourself and your own safety.
Runners will start at the Old Shooting Range trailhead on Davis Gulch and runners can choose whether to complete their chosen distance on trails (the same ones as the Moonlight on Mount Ascension course) or roads.
How it will work for this year. Run the course any day in January 2021 and report your results to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pick a date, pick a friend, pick a course (trail or road) and complete 11.4 miles for the Half-Ass, 22.8 for the Skinny Ass, or 34.2 for the Fat Ass. Send me the date you run, the Ass version you run (trail or road or combination), and your time and I will post results as soon as I compile them or when my big old ass feels like it.
