RR Fat Ass 2012

Beautiful weather and great company were the themes for the 15th year of the Red Rock Fat Ass. About 20 people came out to partake in and watch this annual celebration of running. It was an all locals day and it was great to have all the old guard out.

Seven runners made it the entire distance with Josh Brimhall finishing first followed by Shad about 20 minutes later. Although the RRFA course is more difficult, Jared Wicks managed to improve on his Bootlegger 50k time by over 30 minutes. Eric Swenson wasn't far behind at just over six hours. James Wedekind, David Cambell, and Paula Raimondi (only woman finisher) also toughed it out and finished together to make the distance.

Long time Las Vegas ultra runners Dennis Jensen and James Rapp got in their fix on the familiar trails. While Jan Kendrick and Peggy Paas also logged over 20 miles. Terry Maurer, Imelda Suppe, Paul Daly, and Randy Bell were all in effect and each covered about half the course. Special thanks to Britty for coming out and manning the self service station. None of us would have liked to carry all the water we would have needed for the entire day.
