FATS

The FATS 50K trail race is held on the Forks Area Trail System (FATS) on October 1st, 2015 just outside of North Augusta, SC. Runners will navigate mostly single-track trails with a few rolling hills. Runners will encounter rocks, roots, and the occasional mud along the trails and be treated with a few scenic views of the Savannah River. The course is fast yet very challenging. The race starts and finishes at the South trail head. With no cut-off times; FATS 50K is a perfect trail race for your first ultra marathon.

Entry fees are set at $50.00 for 2017 with additional donations still accepted. All  donations go directly to SORBA-CSRA. SORBA-CSRA maintains the FATS trails year round and are excellent trail partners.
