Join in the Fells Trail Ultra Vernal Equinox Edition Fat Ass style informal run race.

There will be an aid station at the start/finish and a water drop at the half way point. If you wish to bring something for the aid station, that would not be too amiss. Also, there will be a finisher's award.

In addition, we don't mind a few wimps as well.
