Big Sky Wind Drinkers ran in the New Year on January 7 at the Headwaters State Park with our annual FatAss 50k (resolution run). The weather was chilly until the sun came up over the frosty ridge of the river, and the footing was a challenge but we were ready with a fire, snacks and hot soup. In the end, three runners were able to run the entire 50k!
We were pleased that we had 25 runners taking part, including a runner who interrupted his road trip from Pennsylvania to Missoula to join us; a runner from California; and new runners from Montana towns like Toston and Townsend.
Three runners completed the entire 50k run: Ryan Ojeda from Auburn, CA; Randy Oostema from Manhattan, MT;and Grant Marcuccio from MT.
Thank you everyone for making this year’s FatAss 50k a big success!
