The Redeye Run took place for the 13th time on Thursday, January 1, but not without a “hitch.” About 45 hearty runners showed up at Prince William Park refusing to be scared away by e-mails from Anstr and Gary the day before indicating problems with weather and wind, trail conditions, and warnings by the National Park Service to close the Park completely.

The park was open at daylight New Years Day but only the first parking lot at Pine Grove Picnic Area was available. Plan “B” went into effect with the new start/finish and three shorter 9 mile loops that barely made the Redeye an “ultra” event.

Present was one of the original Team Slug members, James Moore, who helped organize the first Redeye in 1997 along with Dan Grayson and Bill Sublett.

With runners doing different numbers of loops, Quatro being left at the start while he was helping guide cars to the new lot, and late arrivals coming and going there was a cold buzz of activity around the sign-in table. Of note: it’s a good thing Kirk Jansen had friends to run with because it was his third loop before he realized the course had been changed from his original map.

The results, not including missed runners, are below.

Gary did these results. Take up any issue with him. When you do, remember this was a Slug/Fat Ass “event” and if you cared about your results, you were in the wrong place.
