It’s not quite a beer mile, but a minor league baseball team is getting into the trend of combining beer and exercise.
The Baltimore Orioles affiliate Bowie Baysox are planning a series of 1K Beer Runs, which consist of three laps around the warning track paired with three beers.
“The 1K Beer Runs have become some of our most popular annual events,” Assistant General Manager Phil Wrye said in a release. “There is no better way to start off a fun afternoon of baseball than getting some exercise and a few drinks down on the field before the game.”
Tickets are $18 and include three beers and “some of the best seats” in Prince George’s Stadium, and it’s limited to 100 participants. Two beer runs will take place on Sunday, May 4 and Saturday, June 21.
Participants are given a beer before each lap, which they will consume on their trip around the field. So more accurately it’s probably a beer walk.
To make things really interesting, I think the best seats in the house should be awarded to those who finish their beers and laps first. Something like that would get me out to the ballpark.
