BEERMILE

Harrah’s Gulf Coast Beer Mile at The Blind Tiger

If you enjoy running and you enjoy beer, the Harrah’s Gulf Coast Beer Mile is the perfect event for you. A beer mile is a 1-mile race combining running and speed drinking. Typically, the race is structured in a 4 loop course with each loop consisting of 400 meters.  The race begins at the 1-mile starting line with the consumption of a 12-US-fluid-ounce beer, followed by 4 laps around the course. After each lap, the runner will drink another 12 ounce beer before starting the next lap until they complete 4 laps. Participants will be drinking Coors Banquet beer.

  • Each competitor drinks four cans of beer and runs four laps on the course laid out around The Blind Tiger (start – beer, then lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap – finish).
  • Beer must be consumed before the lap is begun, within the transition area which is the 10-meter zone before the start/finish line.
  • The race begins with the drinking of the first beer in the last meter of the transition zone to ensure the competitors run a complete mile (1609 meters).
  • Competitors will drink 12 oz canned beer from a standard can.  No specialized cans will be used that give an advantage by allowing the beer to pour at a faster rate. 
  • Beer cans must not be tampered with in any manner, ie. no shot-gunning or puncturing of the can except for opening the can by the tab at the top. 
  • Beer will be a minimum of 5% alcohol by volume. 
  • Each beer can must not be opened until the competitor enters the transition zone on each lap. 
  • Each competitor will tip the empty beer can over their head at the end of a chug to verify the can is empty.
  • Competitors who vomit before they finish the race must complete one penalty lap at the end of the race (immediately after the completion of their 4th lap). Note: Vomiting more than once during the race still requires only one penalty lap at the end. * It is strongly recommended, when attempting official records, to tip the empty beer can or bottle over your head at the end of a chug to verify an empty vessel.
  • The competitor(s) with the lowest total time Start to Finish will be declared Champion and will be awarded a special prize.  Prizes are awarded to the fastest Individual Male, Individual Female and Relay Team.
