How do you set a Guinness World Record for most distance run in the sand for 24 hours?

You drink a Stone Brewing Company beer for recovery.

Last weekend, Patrick Sweeney set a Guinness World Record for Greatest Distance Running in the Sand for 24 Hours, breaking his own record the third edition of the Hermosa 24 ultramarathon which ran from noon Saturday until noon Sunday.

Sweeney broke the world record he set at the same event last year when he logged 87.36 miles while completing 26 laps on the 3.36-mile soft-sand course, according to EasyRiderNews.com.

At midnight during the race he took a break for pizza and Stone beer, which no doubt helped power him through.

Sweeney is no stranger to beer running exploits, which he chronicles on his blog http://bourbonfeet.blogspot.com. He also devotes a blog purely to All Things Inebriating at http://allthingsinebriating.blogspot.com/
