Soiled Sport Trail Series 2014

Well it's about time!

We here at Soiled Sport head office, are pleased to announce the start date of the much anticipated Fat Ass Trail Series 2014.
It all begins Saturday April 12th at Meadowlilly Trails.
Located off of Commissioners Road, just east of Meadowlilly Road, across from the big empty building formerly known as Rona. Drive down to the bottom of the hill and park along the side of the road where it dead ends at the river. Or click on the 'Directions' link on the right hand side of this page and you will see all trail locations on Google Maps.
Start time is 8:01 am
Distance is approximately 10Km

All 30 weeks will be posted in the right hand column. 

Please remember this is all 'Fat Ass Style' running: No water stations, No volunteers, No sympathy

Fat Ass events started back in the late 70's when a runner was fed up with rising costs of running a race and the rising costs of holding a race.

There are three basic rules to a Fat Ass event:
  1. No fees (although we will be doing a 50/50 draw that will have the winning ticket holder split the take at the series end with a charity)

  2. No awards

  3. No whining
And you get what you pay for, no shirts, no aid stations and no sympathy.
As in previous years, the rules I just dream up after a drunken stooper, such as:
  • 10 points for completing a Saturday trail run
  • 10 points for volunteering for a London Pacer hosted event
  • 10 bonus points for wearing Soiled Sport/Vulture Bait/London Pacer shirts, when instructed via this blog before the trail run
  • 25 points for wearing Victoria Secret or LaZenza sports wear. (sorry Bill, woman only)
  • Extra bonus points for attempting to bribe me with cheesecake, booze and winning lottery tickets
