Run The National Beer Mile
It might not be The Naked Mile of American Pie fame--(Google if you’re clueless)--but The National Beer Mile could be just as much fun and you don’t even have to take off your clothes. The National Beer Mile will be held in downtown Las Vegas in Nevada on Saturday, September 10, 2016. The actual event will run from 3 p.m. until approximately 9 p.m. This event in Las Vegas is said to be but a part of The National Beer Mile tour. So what exactly is The National Beer Mile? We’re glad you asked. The National Beer Mile is in short: one mile, four beers, and a noteworthy after-party. The unofficial motto of the NBM is: “Run, Drink, Repeat, Party!” The National Beer Mile is a fun run that goes (duh) one mile.
It is for not only real runners but social drinkers and party-goers too. Again, competitors must drink a beer then jog, run, walk or even skip for a quarter of a mile then repeat the whole process three more times. After the competition, there’s a party. Promoters of this event claim it could very well be “the best mile of your life.”
What is the Check-In time?
Check-in for the run will be from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. The first race starts at 5 p.m. This is a 21 and up event and current, valid photo identification will be required to pick up your packet. Everyone is encouraged to be creative too. Individuality is welcome at this event. Participants can wear normal running gear or an original costume or both. The people behind the event note that they are expecting thousands of people at the after party. The after party will include bar games, food vendors, live music and an open beer bar to boot. Finally, if you have friends who can run the promoters encourage you to form your own National Beer Mile squad and take advantage of the “Group of 5” discount ticket package.
