In advance of the Beer Mile World Championships, the endurance running news website Flotrack has launched a new web video series on the beer mile.
“Anyone who knows anything about track knows that the beer mile is a HUGE underground event and something that people take huge pride in,” said a co-host named Joe in the first episode.
On Dec. 3rd, the Beer Mile World Championships will gather the elite runners of the world who can complete a 5-minute mile while downing four beers. Participants will include Olympians and beer mile record holders like Nick Symmonds.
In the second episode, 5:01 beer miler Corey Gallagher calls out world record holder James Nielson, who is the only runner to have run a sub-5 minute beer mile to date.
