In the next ten seconds I want you to dream up the best possible 5K scenario you can think of. Ready, go.
If your mind blacked out the the running part and went straight to the free beer at the finish line keep reading – you’ve come to the right place.
Why? First of all because this is not a 5K. It’s one mile. That’s right friends, this race only involves one mile of running/skipping/trotting. Second of all it involves more beer than water which is absolutely amazing IMO (although we do recommend drinking some water while you’re at it…staying hydrated is important after all).

The National Beer Mile, coming to Buffalo’s Outer Harbor on Saturday July 16th, brings together runners, walkers, and drinkers for a fun-filled event on Buffalo’s waterfront capped off with an awesome after-party full of live music, games, and clearly the best people on earth – people who spend their summer days running The Beer Mile!
Here’s how it works:
Show up, run a mile with stops every quarter of a mile (or not) to enjoy a cold beer and some water if ya like. Costumes are encouraged (prizes are involved), the after-party at the end of your “workout” has free beer, food is available for purchase, and fun will be had.

This event, which is happening in close to 20 cities across the US this year, has earned its spot as one of the most exciting new “races” to take part in. Is it just us or is running/working out/being away from your couch more fun when you’re not taking yourself too seriously? Races turned social events are everything right now and it’s a trend we’re beyond thankful for.
Sign up to take place in this fantastically unique event and receive entry to the race, a National Beer Mile race bib, 4 Beers during the race, and access to a free beer after-party immediately following the race at the Outer Harbor. Basically everything you dreamed Saturday could be is finally happening. Cheers!
Sign up here and don’t forget to drink responsibility, Buffalo!
