Fat Tire Run - Aug 1-3

(1/14) > >>

Hey AZXC, it's time again for the annual Fat Tire Run!!!

When:  Aug 1-3
Where:  Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  65+ mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp".  On Saturday, we are up early and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail.  We are on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks).  On Saturday afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp").  At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer.  After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre!  On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board).  That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

As always, we need a truck count.  Please post up if you are going:

1.  AZ-Ted
2.  Azfronty99
3.  PitSnipe (tentative)
4.  remo1991 (tentative)
5.  WHPIVxterra
6.  rushnrockt
7.  DBAX1 (aka DBAX)
8.  pinchel (+1 or 2 trucks)
9.  Critchley

tent is a good idea.  some sort of shelter in case it rains.  it will get cold overnight (40s, sometimes 30s).
