You are invited to participate in the Fat Ass Last Man Standing Try-out! This is a free try-out event to see if a Last Man/Woman Standing event can be held in Woolastook next year. The event will start at 10:00 AM and will finish at 10PM, This allows us to try out the concept and should allow enough time to give people a chance to get an ultra marathon in, if so desired :-).
Fat Ass 'run': A run with minimal organization, no fees, no awards, no aid.
Last Man Standing concept: A loop of 5.5K will be set up and every runner will have 1 hour to complete the loop. After exactly one hour the next loop starts and all runners who want to continue have to be at the start line at that moment and so on and so on, till there is one last runner standing.
This event will start at 10AM SHARP.
As you have to register yourself and drop off your own cooler/bag/whatever holds your food & drink, we want you to be at the registration by 9AM, as we have no clue if we will have lots of runners or not.
Please RSVP by joining the event on Facebook, so we can get an idea of the number of runners.
Waiver and Insurance
Every participant will have to sign a waiver; insurance has been covered for you by Canadian Tire Fredericton North, to which we are very grateful!
Awards and Prizes
There are no awards, prizes, t-shirts, medals, aid or food. You are on your own, but the course is marked, so that's a bonus.
Food and Drink
Bring your own! We will have water available, but you are encouraged to bring whatever you need for your run. We do not have cups however; this is a cupless race.
The course will mostly be single and double track through the woods with still plenty of rocks and roots to make a nice face plant.
The first couple of hundred meters are on a gravel road and the last couple of hundred meters will go over an easy grassy part and a nasty hill back to start/finish.
More info to follow closer to the race through this Event page.
Thanks to Richard for the illustration, Glen for coming up with this name and Jerry for helping out with picking a course.
