What Is The Beer Mile?
Running and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly. Runners often celebrate their runs and races with a cold brew or two. Why wait until after the race to enjoy a beer?
4 beers, 4 laps.
The official Kingston Rules (described in detail at were first standardized in 1990 by a group of Canadian runners, including the World Classic co-founder John Markell.
A few fundamentals: 12 oz, 5% ABV beers, any “emesis” results in a one lap penalty.
The beer mile started as an underground event and has evolved into international competitions.
Race Info

There is no requirement, rules or pressure to drink any of the beers on course or in the post party area. Runners who choose not to drink beer still must drink 12oz of water.
