Magnus Gluteus Maximus is the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club’s annual “Fat Ass 50K” which is a fantastic tune up prior to the holidays. This year the trail run was held on Saturday, December 15th and is touted as an official Fat Ass 50K with no entry fee, no awards, no wimps and some aid. The Fat Ass 50K is an out and back course in which nearly 200 runners travel along Bull Run between Hemlock Overlook and Fountainhead Regional Parks, as well as the unmarked Do Loop. TeamHalfwayThere.com/Spokes, Etc. had a strong showing at this year’s event with Andy, Victor, Paul, Barry, Michelle, Cathy and Kelly all participating (results). Congrats to all the finishers and especially the VHTRC folks for hosting another amazing Fat Ass 50K and check out the post race photo of Barry and Paul.


Are you sick of flats? Always wanted to go tubeless but didn’t know how?

You are invited to join us next Tuesday evening, July 24th @ 7pm at Spokes, Etc. located at 1545 N. Quaker Lane in Alexandria, VA for a Stan’s NoTubes Clinic.

If you’ve ever wanted to go tubeless but felt the process is too difficult, here’s your chance to learn how easy it can be from master wheel builder Bill Mould.  After which, we’ll have a live demo and then you’ll have the chance to try it yourself, so bring your wheels and leave your tubes.

Spokes, Etc. will have Stan’s product available for purchase and then members of TeamHalfwayThere.com and Odyssey Adventure Racing-ImONPoint.org will help get you into a tubeless setup.

Soon you’ll be enjoying the plush ride of NoTubes and more importantly, no flats.

Update: Results are now official. Great winning weekend for the team!

The unofficial results for the Odyssey Fall Finale 24 hr adventure race has the two Teamhalfwaythere.com teams tied for first! After spending most of the race within 10 minutes of each the teams decided to link up and proceeded to get all but one point on the night O-course. The came off the mountain together and finished at the same time. No other team got as many checkpoints so once the results are official we can put a win in the book or the Teamhalfwaythere.com 7-headed monster. Thanks to Ronny and his crew for putting on a great race and many thanks to our sponsors, especially Spokes Etc. Alexandria for their support.
