Q: Do I have to be a “real runner” to participate in this race?
Hell no! We welcome people of all athletic levels. We don’t even care if you finish the race although we encourage you to complete at least one of the two laps to enjoy all of our tasty treats along the way!
Q: But wait, what if I am a real runner? Is that OK, too?
Of course! We still love you guys and girls, too! Our race is professionally timed and we will start the race based on pace times, so make sure to find the pace group you belong in.
Q: Are costumes allowed?
Duh. The more over the top, the better and there are prizes for best group and individual costumes!
Q: Can I bring my kids along?
Absolutely! We have had many “junior fat asses” in our years, and we think they have a great time as well. There is even a kids’ area at the street party after the race so they can have a little street party fun as well! Just try not to leave them unattended while you belly up to the beer truck!
Q: So, where does all my money go?
Charity! You can find a list of all of our charities on the website. The great thing is that, unlike some other races, we are completely run by volunteers, so none of your money goes to pay salaries. Also, we have kick-ass sponsors, entertainers, and food vendors that donate their money, time, and services which allows us to give so much to charity- over $1,000,000 to date!
Q: What if I sign up, but then find out I can’t make it? Can I get a refund?
Sorry, no one pulls out of the fat ass! But you can “click” on the link provided in your e-mail confirmation and designate someone else to take your place.
