The City of Boulder OSMP regulations limit group sizes to no more than 24 individuals. Because of this, a wait list will be implemented for runners beyond 24 in count, and we will initiate staggered start-times for separate groups to ensure we are never more than 24 in size.

Carpool: A carpool will need to be set up so that folks can have vehicles parked at the finish, while still making it to the start. Please contact us if you are available to assist with the carpool. We’ll be meeting at Chautauqua Meadow at 7:00am.

Runners are encouraged to also park at Chautauqua and run downhill to the Boulder Bus Depot (RTD).

RTD Regional Bus: The RTD Regional Bus takes passengers from Boulder’s Main Bus Terminal to Nederland on the morning of the run. Please check the local bus schedule for details as a viable option for those looking to transport themselves to the start in this manner.

Aid: Aid will be limited to where volunteers can access. Those locations are on Magnolia Rd and Eldorado Springs. Please bring any drop bags to run check-in. If you or anyone you know is interested in being a roving aid station, please contact us.

This is NOT a race. Human Potential Fat Asses were built with the spirit of camaraderie and community in mind. While we encourage you to run at a pace comfortable to you, we ultimately promote these events as loosely organized group runs.

The Frozen Dead Guy 50K was established in 2012.
