Start: 8:00 am
Tom and Nate Mauger are hosting a WVMTR Fun Run at the beautiful Valley Falls State Park in just east of Fairmont, WV. In trail runner parlance, this is known as a “Fat Ass” (Free) race – we’ll provide food and drinks, but bring some of your own fuel as well – this is the tradition of a “Fat Ass” race. Our aid station is under a large park shelter right next to the parking area so you can also use your car as an aid station! We have some free giveaways for finishers (car stickers and fun homemade medals)!
Select your own distance to run including 50k, Marathon, 25k, Half Marathon, 10 Miler, 8 Miler, 5k, and 1 mile.
This is a WVMTR Club Event that has no registration fee, but participants must register on RunSignUp so there is an e-signed waiver and emergency information available. Members and non-members are welcome!
