Run, Drink, Repeat, Party! A beer mile is a simple concept – drink four beers, one every 1/4 mile. These events have 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 Northwest Pennsylvania!  This event will go on rain or shine and is a Lake Erie Speedway owned event.

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, participants are not permitted to bring their own beer.

The current world record is 4 minutes 34 seconds (source: beermile.com). Running a sub 7:00 minutes Beer Mile puts you in the top 500 all-time.

Lake Erie Speedway Beer Mile Rules

  • Each competitor drinks four cans of beer and run 4 laps around the 400 meter course. The sequence is 1st BEER, 1st LAP, 2nd BEER, 2nd LAP, 3rd BEER, 3rd LAP, 4th BEER, 4th LAP, and FINISH.
  • Beer must be consumed in the ‘Chug Zone’ before each lap begins. The ‘Chug Zone’ is a 10 meter long zone before the start/finish line.
  • If a competitor violates any rule then they must run a ‘Victory Lap’ which consists of an additional lap following their 4th lap WITHOUT having to drink another beer. If they BLATANTLY violate any rule, they are disqualified.
  • Everyone is on the SAME playing field. Women and men drink the same size and quantity of beer.
  • Beers may not be tampered with or have any ‘advantageous’ design. This includes but is not limited to, funnels, straws, or anything else to alter the flow of the bottle.
  • No substitution of the Official Beer- Official Beer will be at least 5% alcohol by volume
  • Competitors who vomit before they finish the race must complete one Victory lap at the end of the race (Immediately after the completion of their 4th lap). Note: Vomiting more than once during the race still requires only one Victory lap at the end.
  • No interfering with or touching other competitors or their beer. Heckling is strongly encouraged.
  • Drinks must be completely drank and held upside down over head. If liquid (not counting foam) comes out, the racer is penalized based on the Beer Judge’s discretion.
  • No leaving the ‘Chug Zone’ until the beer is completely empty.
  • The ‘Beer Judge’ makes the final decision.

**Most importantly, have fun and don’t be ‘that girl or guy’! Remember this is not the Olympics**
