30th Anniversary in 2023

Join us in 2023 for the 30th annual Atlanta FatAss. Burn off those holiday pounds & run more than anyone has the right to enjoy! Usually a "fatass" style event means = no aid, no schwag. But since this is a very special anniversary, we are looking to celebrate with:
- 30th Anny t-shirts
- fun stickers
- a DJ
- the chili cook off is BACK
- Hoka to provide free pair of shoes to 1st 50k male and female
- spicy prizes

GUTS Members Only!

This is a GUTS event and is FREE, but is only open to 2023 GUTS members.
2023 Membership will open on November 1st on Ultrasignup.


The course is 6 loops, on the white trails (counter-clockwise/down Jack's and up the stairs).  All trail, with a few hills. Start/Finish will be at the Group Shelter. Hot food will be available at the finish.
CUTOFF: Runners must start the final loop by 3:00 PM.

FatAss Crockpot Chili Contest

Bring your best chili and vie for a special GUTS prize! Please bring the chili in a crockpot because we don't have enough burners on the stove for everyone. GUTS will provide the bowls and utensils as well some yummy chili toppings. Each runner will be given a ballot to vote for their favorite chili and the winner will receive a special award. The more chili you bring - the more post-race food we will have.
