A run taken to relieve guilt. Usually performed by teenagers, these runs accomplish two things- the release of guilt throught the run, and the attention gained from their peers as people talk about their recent guilt runs. This attention then acts to relieve further guilt. Sometimes, jealousy of attention leads to additional running by the original guilt runners close companions. This is known as copycat running, and can also lead to irrationality and a domino effect throughout small communities.
