    Wednesday the 3rd of Novenber 2010 the Fall Festival: Foot Race was held, and turned out to be a thrilling race and a moving inspiration for everyone who witnesses it. The rules were very simple it was a foot race where the participants were required to pass within 3 squares of markers along the race route. No mounts, form changes, and gates or recalls were allowed. The first person to complete the race without breaking any of the rules was the winner.
    The race that started in Trinsic and ended up at the Catskills Fair Grounds not only took place on the roads but also went through the open woods and even a swamp. At one point there was even a tent in the middle of the road that the race was taking place on. Many of the racers were also attacked by the multitude of monsters, brigands, and undead encounter during the race. There was no reports of any deaths caused by these encounters during the race.
    The winner was RAMPAGE [CIA!], with Underpants Gnome [CIA!] taking second and Masta Blasta [VIPs] coming in third. The rest of the racers crossed the finish line over the following ten minutes. All who took part were winners for completing the grueling race. Though there was some confusion by a few of the racers who ended up at the EM Hall by accident, and two of the racers were disqualified for cheating.

    The most moving part of the race was when Mongy the mongbat was approaching the finish line to complete the race. Showing dedication and the true heart of a champion, his little legs worked hard to show everyone what he was made of. Unfortunately he collapsed before crossing the line and it was feared that he wouldn't make it. That's when EM Kasaven rushed out and helped Mongy cross the line completing the race. Shortly after that Mongy was declared dead, but he had completed the race so he died a winner in everyone's eyes. Mongy the mongbat even finished the race before a few of the other racers only adding to his fame.

    In Mongy's honor the race will from now on be known as the Mongbat Cup and RAMPAGE is Catskills first "Mongbat Cup winner".
