In true fat ass tradition everything about the First Annual Fairfield
County Fatass 50K was ad hoc; from publicity, to start/finish location, to
"aid" stations and marking. Runners commented that there should be more than
roughly 21K of trail with the remainder on roads. All were treated to a
clear, slightly breezy day to follow an out and back course through newly
acquired Trout Brook Valley open space and 4 towns. Winner Kevin
Shelton-Smith entered on the spur of the moment and ran a 4:01 even after a
wrong turn sent him an extra half-mile or so. Local masters stalwart and
women's leader Carol Kane opted for this race over snowshoe race 4 hours
away. She was followed closely by co-race founder Kim Hooper. Walker Andy
Cable turned in a solid 6:51. Ultra virgin and cofounder Ed Dyroff ran a
tough last 4 miles with ultra vet  Joe Schutz. The only non-finishers
planned to go shorter. Everyone seemed pleased by the results. Now RD Jason
Howard can go run the course and plan for next year.
