INFO & RULES  ↑ Back To Top

Race Date: Saturday, September 27

Schedule

9:45am: Pre-race instructions.

  • Please report each completed loop to a volunteer before heading back out so we can keep track of your progress. We can also then upload news updates to Twitter and iRunfar.com. Just kidding.
  • The full 50K is 6 loops (31+ miles) through Bridle Trails State Park.
  • DNFs ARE encouraged! (Please be considerate enough to complete at least one full loop (5.2 miles) so we do not worry that you got lost or abducted.)

9:52am: Pledge of Allegiance

9:54am: God Bless America

9:56am: Star Spangled Banner

10:00am: The race begins!*

  • * By which we mean, the clock starts and you start drinking your beer! The event follows the standard beer mile protocol that states you drink before you run. So once you've finished your first beer, you're clear to start your loop(s). A fresh (and full) glass of beer will await your return. At past events, Mac & Jack's Brewery has been the kind supporter and provider of said beer. Eric Sach has confirmed this tradition will continue in 2014. And let us reiterate that non-alcoholic folks can also participate with their (preferably carbonated) beverage of choice, but they will not qualify for the overall race victory.
  • The race (as well as each loop) will start and finish at the home of the very generous SRC member Peter Kline. If you'd like to play basketball in between loops, I'm sure that can be arranged.

The Fat Glass 50k will be similar to the Bridle Trails Winter Trail Running Festival but in nice weather and during normal running hours. This will be a fully supported fun-run ultra at NO cost to current Seattle Running Club members. Non-club members are also more than welcome to participate, but we would like those to either consider becoming members of the Seattle Running Club, or making a small $20 donation to help fund the event and support the club. (To join the Seattle Running Club, click here)

There will be fun activities for the whole family. A potluck will be available shortly after the race begins and there will be "aid station" type food available throughout the event. All members and friends of the Seattle Running Club are encouraged to join us. Last year, Peter Kline's son was inside the house playing Grand Theft Auto, if that kind of thing interests you.

Many thanks to Peter Kline's son Evan who was out and about, taking great photos from our inaugural event. Thanks Evan! Please note, these pictures were taken at the 2011 event; participants are not guaranteed to look the same at future events.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS  ↑ Back To Top

Take 520 to NE 40th St. Exit.
Go west (turn left) on NE 40th St. to 13630 NE 40th St., Bellevue WA 98005 (approximately 1 mile, house located on the right).

PARKING

Dependent on participation. In past years, street parking has been available and sufficient at race start, but if participation grows a certain amount, some runners may need to park 1.4 miles away from the start/finish at Overlake Transit Center (near the Microsoft campus; 15590 NE 36th St., Redmond WA 98052-5333). Shuttles will be available from the Transit Center if parking there is required. Or you can jog...being runners and all.

QUESTIONS

Contact Peter Kline at peter.kline@live.com or 425-269-5533. There will be good food, good drink, running, music and great camaraderie. I hope you and all your friends will be able to run and enjoy some or all of the day.
