Fat Tire Run - Aug 1-3
« on: June 13, 2014, 06:21:58 AM »
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).

I have almost every year.  I bring all my crap with me, and then get too lazy / intoxicated before I set anything up - lol.  I guess there are a few benefits for being short (I'm only 5'7").

I'm glad there is some interest again this year.  This is an event that AZXC / SWANKy has been participating in for at least the last 10 years.  I started attending in 2007 - although I did miss the last two years due to scheduling conflicts.

Here is what I have so far:

1.  AZ-Ted
2.  Azfronty99
3.  PitSnipe (tentative)
4. 
5.

Have a couple questions.  Is the trail where we will be easy navigated by a 2 wheel drive no lift X ?  And is this a kid friendly ish event ? I think my 5 year old son would have a blast camping and being out there.
