A beer mile consists of consuming beer and running. You run 1 mile or 4 laps (or 4 quarter miles) and drink a beer before each. The beer must be empty before you start running a lap. Your time starts with your first beer and ends when you finish your last lap. If for some reason you can not hold your beer down a penalty lap will be rewarded. This too will count for your overall time.
The sequence will look like bellow:
Beer, quarter mile. Beer, quarter mile. Beer, quarter mile. Beer, quarter mile. Penalty lap if needed (note the penalty lap does not require a beer).
We will be following all official Beer Mile Rules which states the beer must be at least 5% ABV. If you choose to run with a cider/ hard seltzer/ wine cooler (okay mom)/ wine/ less than 5% beer, please note it and we will add a separate results category.

HOW IT WORKS
You can run this wherever you feel comfortable and wherever is legal. If you are lucky enough to have a quarter mile track in your backyard, use that! If not please consider a DD or in walking distance to your house.
Please do not be a hazard to yourself. Drink responsibly. Hydrate and fuel pre and post run.
Don't be a hazard to yourself and others. Stay out of the road.
You are responsible for your own health and safety. Mixing alcohol and running is a dangerous idea. Make choices that are best for your body.
