Macon Beer Fest’s “Beer Run – 1 Mile”
This truly is a beer run. Individuals or a team of four, run a mile, and stop four times to drink a beer. Competitors must drink canned beer and should not be less than 355ml. No specialized cans may be used to give an advantage by allowing the beer to pour at a faster rate. No straws or devices may be used. All beers will be a minimum of 5% alcohol by volume. Hard ciders and lemonades will not suffice. It is strongly suggested to tip the can to show all the contents have been consumed before continuing the race.

Even the littlest hero can help fight prostate cancer, too! Kids nine and under are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero on race day to remind their heroes – Dad, Grandfathers, Uncles, and other males in their life – to not let this villain, Prostate Cancer, get the best of them.
