Two Days of Fat Asses on Colorado’s Western Slope. A great way to provide yourself with a final test before the final Fat Ass of the season. This event was deigned to challenge runners over one, or two, days on the warmer Western Slope while promoting community with a campout! Come run one day, both days, or just come to camp!

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.
Sufferfest Weekend was established in 2016.
