We are up to about 25ish people for the race!!! This number will continue to grow in these 4 weeks...tell a friend! But don't procrastinate TOO much!!! And I thought there were ZERO runners in this area...HA!

ON GOOGLE Earth, the start of the race is at: 32*27'09.62" N and 80*38'38.35"  W  on Google Earth.
The race heads West and around the golf course and crosses back over the start.

We'll be parking at 45 Middle Road, Beaufort, SC 29907-1300 = Coosa Elem. School!!! (May have a driver to ease you down the 0.2 mile stretch of road to your destination.)

Hope this helps!

FATS 50k

Great job to all the runners at FATS! The many, many little hills were fun at first and then NOT. I think we were all motivated by each other and we ranged from 10 to 70 years old. How many sports can claim that?! See you all at MAD MARSH (good news: it's flat and easy)!!!!!!

REASONS to RUN Mad Marsh


Serious sense of accomplishment
Beat a Marine
Beat a Corpsman
Beat a Civilian
Free Water
Coolest Race T Shirt Ever
Cheaper than a 5k
Conveniently located
Nothing like this around for miles
More hardcore than a road marathon (5.3 miles longer)
"Dirt is Good." - Montrail
Flat courses are good for Personal Records
Flat courses are good for first time ultrarunners/22miler-ers
Put it on your resume
Awesome finishing sticker
It'll help you sleep at night (that night, at least)
Lose weight before Thanksgiving
I'm curious about what the race numbers will be made of
The weather should be about 68 degrees
Maybe see a gator
Maybe see an armadillo
Go to the beach afterward!
