    Thanks to DrDrankEngine for organising! This was my first Beer Mile and I enjoyed it much more than I expected. I had thought that it would be a struggle to run fast on a stomach full of liquid, but it was surprisingly ok! 😁 The hard part was trying to drink and catch my breath at the same time! I was happy with my 10.33. Sub 10 next year!

    Thanks for organizing it! First beer mile and I fell prey to the penalty lap. Beers 3 and 4 were an ordeal to get through, I feel humbled. I also found it difficult to run fast during the second and third laps - I think I was dreading having to drink again, it's difficult to motivate yourself to run faster when you know at the end of it there's another foamy beer you have to down.

    Amazed I was as high as 8th given I had such a shocker.

    Any sign of the video?

    Well done all! I’m genuinely amazed Eoinin at how well you did! I thought you’d be only able to sip beer after a lap or two (judging by what I’m like trying to drink water after 400s!) but you still looked like you were enjoying it & you flew around the laps. I think you’ve found your event!

    Well done all & well arranged, Danny, nice to meet you!

    Nice one, Eoin. Took a few scalps there.

    (Terrible race titling on that site - at least two of our National Events have the wrong year - 2019 and 2016. Can no one fix this?)

    Good event again this year! Thanks for organising. Hangover about the same as last year also with the post race drinks.

    I resurrected my old training log and left an account of my race there. 3rd two years in a row. I was targeting 2nd place but the Thomas The Dank Engine was back to full fitness this year and I couldn't catch him.

    It's that time of the year again. And we have decided that given the outdoor nature and our insatiable annual longing for the event, that we will be going ahead with the beer mile this year. We're going with Saturday the 19th of September (just under two months away) and I've created the following thread for the event so dust off your luminescent singlets and get training!
