2014 Results

Here are the preliminary results for the 2014 West Seattle Fat Ass 25/50K.

There were 181 runners total, spread over three start times, so unsurprisingly we got a little overwhelmed with our low tech paper and pen and stopwatch timing system.  Please look over your time.  If something looks weird, i.e. you ran the 50K and we only have your 25K time, we have the wrong start time for you, we have the wrong finish time (according to your gps device), or we have no time for you at all, then please email us at wsfarun@gmail.com so we can fix it.

After we have the kinks out, we will publish the final results.

You can come down the morning of the race and sign up if you like though.  We have trouble saying no to anyone.

West Seattle Fat Ass & Half Ass 2014!

Sunday, Feb 2nd, 2014 - 8:00 am

Start and finish will be at the south end of Lincoln Park in West Seattle, at Picnic Shelter Number 3, which is the southernmost covered picnic shelter down by the water.

The course will run along the sidewalks & streets of West Seattle.

1 out 'n' back = 25K+,
2 out 'n' backs = 50K+

This is a no fee, no shirt, no aid, no whining type event, so plan on carrying your favorite method of hydration and some energy grub as well! -- (And, of course) This is not a race but rather just a fun run intended to count towards Marathon Maniacs/Half Fanatics and other tallies. 

That being said, our goal is to have an aid station at the start and at the turnaround, stocked with your typical ultra fare.   There are some bathrooms along the course, and a few water fountains, but you should carry what water and snacks you need.

One of our beloved volunteers and our (former) intrepid race director/leader have decided to follow their dreams and move on to new careers and aren’t going to be available for the event, so if you are looking for a volunteer opportunity we could use a couple of people.

There is no fee for this fun run, but if you’d like to donate we will have a can out. We had to reserve the picnic shelter this year and we plan on continuing Nic’s donations in honor of his friend to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

2013?

Once again the West Seattle Fat Ass will be taking place on SuperBowl Sunday (2/3/13) with one minor change... this year we will also (officially) offer a 25K option. Further details will be posted when I'm done procrastinating / running / playing with my daughter / drinking... 
To stay up to date check back here or "like" us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/West-Seattle-Fat-Ass/249051655140810?fref=ts
Expect a fun, free, unsupported race (and by unsupported, I mean slightly better supported than last year, which if you've be keeping track seems to get better and better each year if I do say so myself*) - don't expect much else...

* - the support is getting better for the solely because my volunteers kick ass, if it were left to me alone, this race would be much less enjoyable for all involved :-)

As stated this race is entirely, 100%, with out a doubt, FREE FREE FREE...

...having said that, I'm currently raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (HERE) so, if you feeling like throwing some money toward a worthy cause I will gladly accept it and transfer 100% of the donation directly to the LLS.
