The BULLFROG BEER MILE was hosted for the first time on Sunday, June 26th, 2022! The race was presented in collaboration with Bullfrog Creek Brewing Co. The beer mile is for adults 21 and older and begins right outside of Bullfrog Creek Brewing Co at 3632 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Valrico, FL.
The course will consist of 4 laps with each lap starting after finishing a 12oz special Bullfrog Brewery Event branded beer.
The event will be limited to 100 participants in 4 waves of 25. Wave selection will be made at packet pickup on race day. • Awards to the Top Male and Female Overall. • All registrants will receive a Custom Bib, Custom Coaster, 4 - 12oz cans of a special Bullfrog Creek Brewery Brew in a Custom Bullfrog Mile Can! (Beer to be drank during the Beer Mile!) Packet Pick-Up will be held on race day only starting at 10:00am and ending promptly at 10:45am.
Each competitor drinks four cans of beer and runs 1 mile.
Beer must be consumed before each ¼ mile is begun, within the transition area which is the 10-meter zone.
The race begins with the drinking of the first beer.
Competitors must drink canned beer and the cans should not be less than 355ml (the standard can volume) or 12oz (the imperial equivalent).
No specialized cans or bottles may be used that give an advantage by allowing the beer to pour at a faster rate. i.e., "super mega mouth cans" or "wide mouth bottles" will not be provided.
Beer cans must not be tampered with in any manner, i.e., 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.
Do not eat too much within an hour of the race.
The race is short but remember to warm up and stretch.
Hydrate well the day before and day or the race.
****If you haven't ran a beer mile before, there is a chance you may not be able to finish all your beers in the run. No worries, you will have a beer to sip and enjoy at the finish line. Containers will be set near beer stations if for any reason you try and finish the race too quickly and your stomach betrays you.****
We suggest you arrive early, as parking around Bullfrog Creek Brewing will be closed prior to race start, or park at Fresh Market Shopping Center and walk to Bullfrog Creek Brewing. Or Uber/ Lyft to race.
This is not an official beer mile and thus you will not be able to download your time to the Beer Mile Website.
You are free to run and drink at your own pace, but the Beer Mile is a race, and you will only have 20 minutes to complete your mile. 25 person heats will begin every 25 minutes. You will be assigned a heat at registration. Once again beers not consumed during race are yours to enjoy after the race.
All the beer in the race is brewed by Bullfrog Creek Brewing! Make sure to savor it as you speed through the race!
