Got a fat ass after Holiday bingeing? Then, the Fat Ass Run is the perfect running event for you.
The Fat Ass Run is NOT a race; it’s a long run for everyone to burn the extra pounds without having to deal with registration or pre-race jitters. Here’s more info for those interested:
WHAT: Fat Ass Run
WHEN: Jan. 9-10, 2009
WHERE: Clark Parade Grounds
DISTANCE: More or less 2.2.KM loop around Clark Parade Ground (yes, you read it right!)
TIME: 6, 12, 18 & 24 hour time event
START TIME: For 24 hours, the start is 8AM of Saturday, 18 hours – 2PM and the 12 hour at 8PM. This way everyone will finish about the same time (8AM) of the next day (Sunday) and thus, more festive and everyone can have a BEERday and BBQ!

Basically, runners will run 2.2km loops, counting the number of loops they make until they reach their goal time. Runners can take a break, eat, or even sleep.
You know, running loops was never my thing, but with a good crowd, the cool weather, plus a whole lot of food around, this event sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Too bad I’ll be in Cebu Marathon. No worries, I can still be a Fat Ass runner next year, if there’s a repeat.
