About This Activity

This year’s edition of the Virginia Blue Ridge Downtown Twilight Criterium on Saturday May 21st will feature a Beer Mile and Beer Fun Run!

If you’re not familiar with the Beer Mile, here’s how it works:

Chug a beer, run 1/4 mile, chug a beer, run 1/4 mile, chug a beer, run 1/4 mile, chug a beer and run 1/4 mile. So… 4 beers and 1 mile, can you handle that?!

Runners in Wave 1 (with projected finish times of 10:00 or under) will start at 4:30pm. The top Male and Female finishers will receive cash prizes of $500 each!

Runners in Wave 2 (“fun runners”) will start at 4:45pm and test their luck in the Beer Fun Run. If you’re just “fun running”, you will only chug 2 beers but still run 1 mile. The format for the fun run is as follows:

Chug a beer, run 1/2 mile, chug a beer and run 1/2 mile.

Entry fees for this event will be $10 for Wave 1 (Elite runners) and $5 for Wave 2 (fun runners).

Come out and challenge yourself in this one-of-a-kind event… or just come drink beer and watch! See you there!!
