2012 S.O.F.A Manana

 Tomorrow, Saturday the 21st trail runners will rejoice on the lower Rogue River Trail south of Graves Creek for the annual Southern Oregon Fat A$$.  Now it is customary that this event be detailed as a 50k trail run but the beauty of the RRT is that anyone can run the out and back as far as their heart or rather feet and legs desire.  

From the FB event page;

The plan is to leave Graves creek about 9AM on Saturday, January 21st and run out-n-
back for a total of about 50k. Remember, out-n-back means you can cut
it short or make it long. Invite anyone you think might want to join us. I hope to see you there!

This is a self-supported run so carry what you’ll need. We cross countless streams, but partake at your own risk. Do I need to mention rain and poison oak?

The SOFA started out as a way to celebrate birthdays, but anymore, it’s a way to spend time on a beautiful trail with great people.

From the north, take the Wolf Creek exit #76 to the Graves Creek
trailhead. I think it's about 9 more miles.

From the South, take the Merlin exit #61 and do the same. You'll go
about 20 more miles to the trailhead.

Can't wait to see all of you out there, rain or shine!
