Interested in Big's Backyard in Tennessee? Here's your local chance to practice. Run as close to Big's rules and terrain as possible. 

This is a "not for profit" event. I will be collecting cash donations for DuPuis Management Area (there is also a green donation bin at the main gate.) Also I will have FTA membership pamphlets available and collecting donations for our local chapter. I strongly encourage you to become an FTA member. They selflessly maintain hundreds of miles of Florida single track. Our local Loxahatchee chapter are the maintainers of the trail you will be running on.

A fatass last man standing event. 4.166667 mile loop to be started at 7:00 am.The race restarts at the top of the hour every hour until only one runner can complete the loop on time, or everyone quits. Fatass, this means no whining, no aide, no bling, no whatever those other races do to make you feel secure and comfortable. What you WILL get is a warning whistle at 3,2 and 1 minute prior to the hour (that whistle gets very old, very fast) and loving abuse from yours truly when you quit. Also included free of charge (for now) is the beautiful landscape that is the Dupuis Management Area. If you've not spent any time out this way you're in for a real treat. As with Carnage at the Canal coolers will be set up at the start/finish line, first come first serve. 
As always this is a homage to Big's Backyard in Tennessee, started by none other than Laz. I don't want anyone thinking this sadistic idea was my original.
