51 runners headed off on a perfect autumn morning on the 4th of November, 2018. This was the first running of the Potomac Heritage FatAss 50k Run at it's new start/finish in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood in DC.

All in all it was a great success and followed in the great spirit of the event from years before. Runners were treated with some new trails marked by blue chalk. Although it seems that a few veteran runners (and a few runners following them) missed the great new re-route up and on the Glen Echo Trolley trail. We had many bandit runners, Swedish Mafia, Nipples, Navels, Drawings, Fireball, deer and wildlife sightings. Remember that this was a run where everything is made up and the points don't matter. If you are keeping score at home, medical help is on the way. Don't argue with them, just go where they tell you to.

The after party rolled on until 7pm and the Kobocha Curry was a huge hit! Much libations and fun were had and we all can't wait to do it again next year! Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers that donated their time out that day to make sure that everyone was accounted for and provided aid. Cheers! Your PH50K RD, WHTom
