September 11th 50K

The response to my idea of having a run around Manhattan has been resounding over 20 people have expressed interest. A lot more than I had originally thought. So I have decided to set up this blog has the go to place for information. So that being said instead of being an informal run it will be a Fat Ass Race. Low key, there might be other things if people are interested.

September 11th 50K Run around Manhattan

I am putting together a run around Manhattan, it will be called the September 11th 50K on September 11th. It will be a Fat Ass 50K around the island of Manhattan to honor September 11th. I thought it would be a good way to honor the day. So far I have gotten some positive responses. We will meet at the entrance to the Staten Island Ferry and start and finish downtown. Feel free to get the word out.
