Waking up on New Year’s Day after staying up late, imbibing in alcoholic beverages, and probably not feeling great is usually a great reason to stay in bed and sleep in a little longer than normal. However, you could take a different route with a little hair of the dog and a fun run 3K, or even better for those 21+ runners, the Beer Mile.
The Beer Mile consists of participants drinking a 12 oz beer and then running 1/4 mile, drinking another, running another 1/4 mile, repeated for 4 total laps and beers consumed. In this race, if you vomit before completing your mile, a penalty lap is added before you can finish. The 3K race is a standard gravel/trail flat and fast course with an aid station at mile 1 stocked with adult beverages for those 21 and over.
If you’re a masochist as us runners sometimes tend to be (I mean who likes waking up at 5 AM to go run in the rain just because?), then put this inexpensive and fun race on your calendar and drag yourself out to be hungover in good company!
