Rob and Jeff are from Kingston Ontario. We're looking to head to Austin Texas to compete in the Inaugural Beer Mile World Championships on December 3rd. We are passionate about the sport and hope to represent Canada strongly against the world's best. The event is being hosted by Flocasts (http://www.flotrack.org/beermileworlds).

What is a beer mile?

(Official site)

A beer mile is a 4 lap race on a 400m (~1/4 mile) track in which a standard (355ml, 5% ABV) beer is consumed before each lap is run. If a competitor vomits at any point during the race, they must complete an additional lap with no beer at the end of the 4 laps.

Kingston is special

The current accepted "Kingston rules" were conceived in Kingston Ontario by a stellar group of beer milers in the early 90's. We are proud to continue that legacy by running fast beer miles in the pursuit of excellence, and by supporting other beer miles around the province.

About us

Rob: - 5:42 best (pending ratification) -> 16th all-time ranking
Jeff: - 5:48 best -> 23rd all-time ranking
- 5:51 seasonal best (pending ratification)

What the money goes towards

  • $400 each (x2) for round trip flights and travel
  • $200 total for hotel accomodations (1 room, 2 nights)
  • If additional donations are recieved beyond the goal, funds will go towards specialized custom racing gear and potentially bringing additional competitors on the trip

Stay tuned!

We will be providing video updates in the coming months as well as hopefully sponsorship information from local breweries.
