Description

Join us for a Free Trail Race at Valley Falls State Park in on Saturday August 20th, 2022!

In trail runner parlance, this is known as a "Fat Ass" (Free) race - we'll provide food and drinks (Tailwind) - but bring some of your own fuel as well as is the tradition of a "Fat Ass" race. The aid station is under a large park shelter right next to the parking area so you can use your car as your own personal aid station!

WHEN: August 20th at 8AM (10 hour cutoff)

COURSE: The run is a moderately difficult 7.75 mile figure 8 loop with a single aid station in the middle.  (see link to loop on Garmin - https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4947671364) and course map here.  This course is at beautiful Valley Falls State Park just east of Fairmont, WV.  Elevation gain is approximately 1500ft per loop. This race is free, but the tradition is to bring your own food to contribute to the aid station or to eat yourself. The course will be marked.

FINISHERS: We have some free giveaways for finishers (car stickers and fun homemade medals)!
