Short review

We're back!

What is this?  This is the fourth annual 8-Hour Fat Ass-ish Run at Brown County State Park.  Like previous years, we will have a challenging 8-hour course to run plus optional camping and meals for all participants.   

What’s the Course Like?  This is a loop course with about 8 miles of single track trail - approximately 2000’ of total elevation change.  The Course will start and finish at our basecamp - Rally Camp 1.  Run, walk or crawl it as many times as you want during the 8-hour event.

Is this a race?  Nope.  Think of it as a glorified training run.  But, we will give out a couple of special awards at the end.  How about that?

Do I have to run for 8 hours straight?  Of course not.  The Course will be open for 8 hours.  Run, hike or crawl as much or as little as you want.  But be sure to hang around afterward to support your fellow runners and have fun!

Will there be course support?  Yes.  There will be a staffed aid station at the start/finish area and a fill-up station at the Walnut Shelter.  Please bring your own container (handheld / hydration pack) and your special hydration and nutritional needs.  We will have some food to share with everybody at the end.  Please bring some stuff to share too!

Does this cost money?  That depends.  The total cost of the event (running, camping and meals) is included as a membership benefit of the Indiana Trail Running Association.  Members pay no money.  You membership discount will be taken at checkout.  Non-members will be charged $30 for the run and $20 (Optional - which will be paid to the park) for weekend camping.  Certain fees from runsignup.com may also apply. Proceeds from the event are going to Indiana Trail Running Association, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization, as a fundraiser.  The money is going to a good cause.  Join the club and pay nothing!

Ok, you said something about awards…  Yes!  Once again we are doing a “Garmin Challenge.”  A special award will be given to the male and female participants with the most mileage recorded during the 8-hour event on their GPS watches. Our awards are very impressive.  Just ask around.

Camping?   Yes.  Once again we have reserved Rally Camp 1 for the whole weekend.  Members camp for free (but you need to register in advance) and non-members pay $20 (Optional - fee goes to the park) for the whole weekend.  There will be informal running opportunities and pitch-in meals.  A great time will be had by all!

I am a Member, How do I get my discount?  Your discount will be taken at check out.

What if the event gets canceled?  Sorry, there will be no refunds.

Anything else?  Support your local non-profit trail running club!
