Out Running the Hands of Time...
Welcome to the Official Old Farts Web Site!
RACE UPDATES: Please take every precaution that you can, your health, safety and well being of you and those around you are a major concern these days. Please cough, sneeze, spew inside your shirt or into your sleeve and not on others. If you suspect that yur hands are dirty...wash them, give air high fives. Wear a mask if you think you are going to be around air borne contaminants. Wear a mask if you can't keep your hands away from touching yur face. Don't let the germs get into your mouth...stop chewing your finger and toe nails. The average person touches their face 16 times an hour.
We understand the concerns of social distancing and to wear a mask or not and gloves so we will leave those up to you to decide wheather or not to run this year. If you had pre-registered and would like a full refund just send Coach Dan an email at email@example.com and we will send back your registration in the mail. Thanks for all your support.
The Inclinator will be run on Sat. July 11th and the Mummy will be run on Sat. August 1st...there will be just a water jug on a table and maybe some pre-packaged cliff bars. Due to Covid-19 we will not be manning the aid station....please be prepared by bringing your own water and snacks.
OK all you Old Timers and Youngsters...come run in some Old Fart Events...but do not think that because we are the Old Farts that any of our events are a push over! We have the the challenge known as "The Mummy" that is so scary tough that it make even the toughest of Grandpa's teeth rattle!!!....so be afraid...be very afraid!!!
Not to scare you off but most runners come from out of state because they don't know any better. We hope you can come and run in anyone of our great races in the upcoming season. We also encourage you to become an Official Old Fart Club Member so that you can receive a $5.00 race discount on all the Old Fart Races. So come on out and experience any one of our great races and we will guarrantee you that you will never forget the race you run because they are so much fun. Great Aid Station worker, challenging courses and great swag!
It does not matter on the AGE that you are but upon the effort that you give...If I could have done it all over again, I would have encouraged more, seeked the impossible, and would have been trying to do what others thought I could not have done a lot more often...
OLD FART MISSION STATEMENT: We the willing, led by the unknowning, are doing the impossible for the sometimes ungrateful. We have done so much for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything, with nothing, for nothing.
