Our Fat Boy Riverside 5K race takes place on Saturday, February 6, 2016, before Fat Tuesday. We thought we would add some Fat Tuesday fun to our 5K Run/Walk.
Fat Tuesday is celebrated by indulging in gluttonous amounts of rich fatty food and sometimes participating in sinful behaviors before fasting. We will do our very best with the rich fatty food for our Fat Boy 5K. Other customs associated with Fat Tuesday include wearing decorative masks, beads and costumes, and dancing. Those celebrating Fat Tuesday wear the official colors for Mardi Gras: purple, green and gold.
Weight divisions for race timing for everyone. Awards for top three winners in all weight divisions for Women's Athenas and Men's Clydesdales in the 5K race.
