Beer Mile Basics
Test your endurance and your stomach in Springfield’s Shamrox Beer Mile in conjunction with Shamrox 15K and 5K. Beer Milers will unite and determine who is the Beer King and Queen of all the land. Some may fall, some may hurl, some may not even make it but for those that do will display their Beer Mile badge of honor proudly and yelling for all to hear “I conquered the Beer Mile”.
• 10:00AM – It will take place following the 15K & 5K. This is a Time Trial Start. Please check back prior to event day for the most up to date information.
**Please note depending on the flow of the 15K & 5K , we may delay 10 to 15 Minutes

**We will be checking ID’s at time of packet pickup. If you registered and are not 21 you will not compete in the Beer Mile. There are no refunds.
How Beer Miles Work
Each Beer Miler will run 4 laps on a closed course. It will be a staggered Time Trial Start. before each lap, participants will drink approx. 6 oz. of beer in a sectioned off beer garden area dedicated for the Beer Mile. The person who runs the fastest 4 laps and drinks 6 oz. of beer per lap wins! Pretty easy right?
7 Beer Mile Tips
- Choose a lighter Beer over a heavier beer. Not really a tip as you have to kinda drink what we give you.
- Pace yourself. If you haven’t ran in a while don’t go crazy. You have a whole mile to run and o yea beer to drink on top of that!
- Have a designated driver. Make sure you have a designated driver. I don’t think we need to elaborate here. Don’t be dumb!
- Respect the Beer Mile. We know it’s only a mile and its only beer but running and beer usually do not go well together like peanut butter and cheese. Eating peanut butter and cheese may have the same affect on your stomach as beer and running……
- Practice. Slam one and then do a 50 meter sprint. Take a 3 min break and do it again 5 more times. That will get you ready for the beer mile…………This is a joke, don’t do that you will probably get really sick!
- Make sure you are at least 21. Sorry kids only adults can partake in this race
- Have Fun. This is going to be a blast so enjoy it! Come with friends, take pictures and make it a memorable experience!
