Chug, Chug, Chug: This 1-Mile Race Actually Replaces Water With Beer
So, how did sticking to your New Year’s resolution go?
Every year, approximately 38 percent of Americans make resolutions related to weight loss, healthy eating habits and better fitness routines in general.
If you were one of those people who ended up not sticking to a self-improvement resolution, you might be in dire need of some motivation! Good news: I have exactly what you’re looking for.
What if I told you there’s a race you could run where all of the water stations used to refresh participants were replaced with beer stations? Well, there is!
It’s called the Brew Mile. Get it?
The races, which take place all around the United States, put runners’ true passions to the test. Everyone wants to win, but will everyone be able to run a mile and drink four massive beers in the process?
But there’s only one way to find out!
First, you have to head over to the Brew Mile website and sign up for a race near you. Before you know it, it’ll be time for you to prove yourself. You’ll have to get geared up to run the mile and guzzle your beers.
Once you complete the race, you’ll make your way to an epic afterparty where you’ll have the time of your life. I’m going to say this is better than trying to convince yourself the treadmill is fun!
Included in your $45-80 registration fee is admission for the Brew Mile running event and afterparty, a pint glass, four beers on the course and, of course, bragging rights.
Not all of us are built for a task like this.
As for the profits? They’re all donated to local charities in the cities where each Brew Mile race takes place. So while you’re helping yourself (and testing your liver), you’re also lending a hand to others.
