A new race is coming to San Francisco’s Lake Merced Park on Saturday November 4. It’s not your typical marathon, or race either. This is the Lard Butt 1k and it features runners in costume, a beer garden, and several donut stations along the route.
You can either walk, or run the 1 kilometer course. If you choose to run, you’ll likely find yourself being heckled in the “show off wave” of the event. The “legends wave” is reserved for participants 250 pounds and heavier.

Fluffy life, happy life. 😂🤣😂 what a fun fun fun time at the "Lard Butt 1k", never thought .62 of a mile could be so entertaining!! #lardbutt1kseattle #lardbutt1k #ballerinaprincess #allforagoodcause #univeristydistrictfoodbank #magnusonpark #buffetgonewrong #donutlife #fluffylifehappylife #runnershavingfun #girlrunners
