VHTRC MGM50K Fat Ass

The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club hosts the best Fat Ass events. The annual Magnus Gluteus Maximus 50km was another fabulous event. With a sprinkling of snow at the start and some icy rain at the finish, most of the day was just cold and cloudy. The trails were challenging with a snow and ice layer that turned into mud as the day went on. Aid stations were stocked with the best of ultra fuel – cheese puffs, M&Ms, holiday cookies and bourbon. The after-party at Hemlock was a rollicking good time. And as always, the best part of the day was playing with great friends on the trail. Cheers to another year of happy running in the VHTRC!
