Capitol Peak MegaFatAss 25K | 50K

January 16, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm PST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 7:00 am on day third of January, repeating until April 15, 2023

The Discover Pass is REQUIRED for parking in Capitol Forest for the Mega Fat Ass or the Capitol Peak 50 mile/25k in April. The DNR enforcement office WILL be writing tickets! So if you are planning to run either of these races or any other races that are on Washington state land (including WA state parks), you might as well purchase an Annual Pass.

Everyone also needs to have a DNR waiver signed before checking in at the start.

Printing these forms and bringing them already signed at registration will help speed up registration! This DNR waiver is NOT part of the online registration!

We will be giving out bib numbers before the start. Even if you already registered, please come early (prior to 7:30am) and you will receive a bib number upon a receiving your signed DNR waiver.

If you are not familiar with the Capitol Forest trails, print out the Course Map to take with you so you don’t get lost. The course is well marked with red/yellow flagging or orange spray paint arrows to follow the MegaFatAss course.

Thank the South Puget Sound Search and Rescue (SPSMSAR) for their continued support for Capitol Peak Ultras events! SPSMSAR will be stationed at the top of the Wededind/D-1000 rd with water, but no food…remember this is a Fat Ass so bring your own supplies.

For those running the 34 mile:
There is no early start. The cutoff time for reaching the Wedekind Aid station is 12:00. The 50K cutoff time is 5:00pm.

If you have a drop bag, Please clearly mark your name on your bag, otherwise you may not see it again.

For everyone:
Post-race potluck: please bring a can of chicken noodle soup or butternut squash soup (if vegetarian). We will cook it all together and be hot and ready at the finish. Everyone is welcome to hang out at the finish with FOCF, soup, a fire and good times!

There is limited overnight camping available for anyone wanting to stay at McKenny Campground by the start/finish Friday night. If you are planning on staying Friday night, please let me know. There will not be camping available Saturday night.

Olytrailrunners are excited to continue the traditions of Capitol Peak Ultras and a portion of your race fee will be donated to the South Sound Search & Rescue and Friends of Capitol Forest.

Additional donations to Friends of Capitol Forest will also be much appreciate…FOCF are the ones who have worked hard on many thousands of hours each year on trail projects in Capitol Forest! Hang your Discover Pass or get a ticket!
