Cross Country Beer Mile

Must be 21 with proof of age. You will need a designated driver present at registration.

It sounds so simple – drink four beers, one every 1/4 mile. The Beer Mile has been held unofficially for years, in the dark on college campuses/high school tracks around the country. We are bringing the event out of the dark so you can get an official time, invite your friends, and challenge them to a race unlike any other in Western New York!

How the beer mile works:
• Drink 12oz Beer, Run 400m
• Drink 12oz Beer, Run 400m
• Drink 12oz Beer, Run 400m
• Drink 12oz Beer, Run 400m

Beer for the event will be provided by Southern Tier Brewing, participants can not bring their own beer.  With Southern Tier, why would you want to?

The current world record is 4minutes 47 seconds. Sub-7:00 puts you in the top 500 all-time, sounds easy but it is not.
