Sat 01/28/2017 Eternal Winter 6-Hour Run Annapolis, MD (Quiet Waters Park) 8:00 a.m. The Eternal Winter 6 Hour Run course is the 4.15701 mile paved perimeter trail within Quiet Waters Park. It is a FAT ASS style run benefiting our local Food Link of Maryland in Annapolis. By definition, “FAT ASS is the name given to a series of low key runs that are frequented by experienced runners and walkers and characterized by the phrase “No Fees, No Awards, No Aid, No Wimps”. Because the runs are not races in any sense, there is no guarantee of anything other than a course to run. There are no course marshals, and no course markers, and you should not expect any aid either. They are an exercise in self-help.”
