One Big Fat Run Event

I have a dream, a dream that one day…one day 1 MILLION overweight runners from all over this crazy planet will participate in a single running event on one given day. Can you picture it… parks and footpaths, tracks and treadmills all over the land taken over by an army of determined runners, albeit a little larger than your average runner but with an “I don’t care” stare on their face and a Fattymustrun Tshirt on their back.

I have a dream that wherever you are in the world, however many pounds you still need to lose, regardless of how fast of slow you can run, that you stand up and be counted in this world of toned and trim athletes. So what if you don’t have the latest technical running gear, and you have to wear two bras one over the top of each other to prevent collateral damage… you are a runner and you deserve to run.

So what do you think? Can it be done? Is it possible to find 1 Million overweight people willing to come on board with this crazy idea?


I don’t care how you do this 5K, you can complete it on a treadmill, create a loop from your front door around town and back, run it all completely on a running track if that’s your thing, in a park with your mates, or even as part of a formal race if you are that brave…I don’t care, as long as the distance is 5K and runners use their own esteem to get from the start to the finish.

The inaugural virtual “One Big Fat Run” race took place on Sunday 25th August at locations across the globe – We may not be able to twist everyones arm at first, as it’s quite scary signing up to your first run, and 5K seems like such a long way…but remember you can walk it, even if it takes you all day (who cares??), but I am so convinced we will get there one day I will be repeating this event monthly on the last Sunday of each month until we do.

I think it’s about time that we show this world, that Fat people can and do run too!!! Maybe if there were more larger runners visible in this world we would get less stares, less insults, less laughs…and maybe even more would be runners, wanna be runners, and could be overweight runners would join us. So please help spread the word…share this with your friends, your real ones and your virtual ones and be part of this Fattymustrun revolution

How do I sign up?? Click Here…and remember to share the event with your friends, family and colleagues, remember we are aiming for 1 million runners.

The only question is how long will it take to get this Fattymustrun running revolution up and…erm…well… RUNNING!!!! To check out photos and comments from the past events check out AugustSeptemberOctoberNovember December and January event pages
