The first official Beer Mile in Eureka will be held starting at 2 PM on April 20th, 2019! This event will be produced by Humboldt Bay Marathon in partnership with The Booth Brewing Company and The City of Eureka.
What is a "Beer Mile"??? Simply run a mile while also chugging 4 beers. Fastest time wins!
Details: One 12 ounce beer must be consumed before each lap around a 1/4 mile track. For official rules, see the official Beer Mile website.
The official world record is an incredible 4:33.6 by Corey Bellemore of Canada. Here's a video of another world record-setting run.
Beer Mile runners must be at least 21 years of age and must also bring a designated driver. Your designated driver must also be available to volunteer during the race.
We will also have a Root Beer Mile for runners who want to be a part of this fun event but without drinking beer. (Designated Drivers may participate in the Root Beer Mile!)
