The “Beer Mile” is a racing event rapidly growing in popularity across North America. But a typical beer mile is performed on a 400m track. The world record was just set last year on a track in a time of 4:57.
We won't see a time anywhere close to that here.
As you know, nothing about the Mad Trapper Races are typical. There are literally twists and turns to every challenge that one has to experience before finishing. That is just one reason why Mad Trapper races are so fun and exciting.
So we’ve laid out a 400m challenging, technical trail racing loop here at The Ark, which now comprises 1/4 of the Trail Beer Mile. But the only difference between our trail beer mile and all other beer miles is the terrain. Otherwise we follow all the standard beer mile rules as listed on www.beermile.com
Racers will start by chugging a 355ml Broadhead Beer. Showing the can is empty by holding inverted over their head, they will head out to race the 400m loop. This sequence will be repeated 4 times for a total of 4 beers consumed and 1600m (one mile) run!
Although belching is allowed, and encouraged, should a racer vomit at any point of the course they are penalized by running one additional 400m lap.
Are you MAD ENOUGH for some beer mile trail racing????
