8-Hour Sunburn Run 'Race Report'

On July 28th, 2013, New Leaf Ultra Runs organized a 8-Hour Sunburn Fun Run (for members only).  These type of runs are considered a "Fat Ass Event".  It is not an official race, there are no fees (however, donating is a good idea) and no real awards.  It is definitely not a race.  If you are looking for a medal to prove what you did for the day, you are signed up for the wrong event.  You aid yourself with drinks, snacks, etc and for this run you decide how much you want to run/walk during the 8 hours.  (People did bring plenty of food and drinks to share so you never needed to worry about food.)
