Festiversary Beer Mile Classic

Kick off Festivisary with the inaugural Festiversary Beer Mile Classic presented by Bent Paddle and Duluth Running Co.

What? A beer mile? Yes! If you’re not familiar, a beer mile is a one mile race that involves running(or walking if you prefer) and drinking. This underground style event is typically held on a track and involves drinking four 12oz beers. A beer is consumed prior to the start of the race, and one again after completing the first, second, and third quarter laps.

The Festiversary Beer Mile Classic flips the beer mile on its head. Instead of running on a track we’re holding our event on West Michigan street next to Bent Paddle. And instead of consuming four 12 oz beers out of bottles participants in this beer mile consume four 7oz pre-poured Bent Paddle Classic beers (Approx 2 ⅓ beers). Each beer is consumed in the same order as a traditional beer mile. Much like the new Bent Paddle Classic beer we’ve made our beer mile approachable for everyone.

This event is limited to the first 500 registrants.
