Subject: First Day Of Winter Fat 50K
First Day Of Winter Fat 50K registration is up and ready- Free run - run the entire 50K or what ever distance you wish - this is a true Fat -

FAT is the name given to a series of low key runs that are frequented by experienced runners & walkers and characterised by the phrase "No Fees, No Awards, No Aid, No Wimps". Yes, the runs are totally free to enter and are put on by passionate runners who are also running. Think of it as a bit like meeting some people for a bushwalk - except it's a run. Because the runs are not races in any sense, there is no guarantee of anything other than a course to run (although maps and directions may not provided). There are no course marshalls, and no course markers, and you should not expect any aid either. They are an exercise in self-help, and as such experienced runners only should come and join us - they are not intended for beginning runners.

Thanks for the heads-up, Jenn.  Unfortunately, this one doesn't work for me with location and date but hope there's a great turn-out.   I just participated in my first FA50K last weekend and loved having a bunch of other folks out on the trails yet having no cost and no frills.   I didn't think to post the event here but will do that when they have another one in March.  It's at the park where I'll get to see you at the HUFF!   So will you do back to back 50K's then (the 21st and 28th)?   If so, WOW!

I just made the connection with you and the Facebook post on the IT 50/100 Training group!  (OK, I'm slow).   Good idea to post there too.

That's one heck of a MONTH!!   I think you're doing more in December than I've done all year.  I totally get the "no race" thing - it's all about enjoying the journey.  Now I really have got to meet you.
