The game has changed.
The time breaks the world record set by James Nielsen and equals the pending unofficial time of James Hansen.
This performance raises the stakes for the Beer Mile World Classic, where Nielsen and Harris will meet in San Fransisco on August 22.
Harris clearly has unfinished business for the race.
“World Beer Mile Classic, here we come,” Harris says at the end of his YouTube video.
I’ll be in San Francisco to witness the showdown. I’m both running the non-elite race and writing about the elite race afterward.
Hopefully, I’m in good enough shape to do both.
BREAKING: Literally just as I’m finishing this post, I see that ANOTHER runner has posted an unofficial beer mile record of 4:55. WHAT IS HAPPENING.
