Join us for the Beer Mile 2022.

While posted by Beijing hash, this is not a hash and is a timed event/race.

Race is being run on 575 meter track so full event is 2.3 km or 1.4 miles.


1. Each runner will run 4 laps and drink 4 beers.

2. At the start of the race each runner will open and drink one 12oz. can of beer and then run one 575m lap.

3.The runner will again drink another beer and do another lap, 4 times total.

4.Beer must be drunk in transition area, not while running/walking.

5.Event will be timed and there will be awards for Male and Female winners.

The beer we are drinking will be:

Standard rules( also need to follow):

  1. Women also drink four beers and run four laps (some past rule lists only required ladies to drink three beers).
  2. Competitors must drink canned or bottled beer that is no less than 355mL (12 Oz) in volume, which is the standard can/bottle size in the USA and some other countries.
  3. No specialized cans or bottles may be used that give an advantage by allowing the beer to pour at a faster rate (e.g. wide mouth bottles/cans).
  4. Beer cans must not be tampered with in any manner. (e.g. no shotgunning, puncturing the can, squeezing the can, etc.). The same applies for bottles – no straws or other aids allowed that speed up the pouring process. The only action allowed is opening the can with the tab at the top or twisting off the bottle cap of a bottle.
  5. Beer must be a minimum of 5% alcohol by volume. Hard ciders, hard sodas, and other alcoholic sugary drinks will not suffice. The beer must be a fermented alcoholic beverage brewed from malted cereal grains and flavored with hops.

  6. Each beer can/bottle must not be opened until the competitor enters the transition zone on each lap.
  7. Competitors who vomit before they finish the race must complete one penalty lap at the end of the race (immediately after the completion of their 4th lap). Vomiting more than once during the race still only requires one penalty lap at the end.
  8. When attempting a performance for the official records, it is recommended to provide video evidence of the race and prove that all beer was sufficiently drank. This can be achieved by tipping the empty beer over your head after each chug to verify an empty vessel or by collecting the containers and pouring the contents into a measuring cup to prove there is less than 4oz of liquid/foam remaining total across all four beers. We recommend picking up a pack of disposable measuring cups for your next beer mile event.
