    • Registration fee is $30.00 for individuals and $90 for relay teams. This includes race entry, 4 beers of sponsored brand, and an event tee shirt. Prices may increase as we approach race day, so get your tickets now!

  • Can I be a spectator?

    • We do encourage all to join us as a participant or volunteer, but if you must stay on the sidelines for any reason, spectators that double as photographers and marketers are needed also! You are welcomed to watch the beer milers and encouraged to stop at the donation station to be part of the #CELEBRATION4ACAUSE.

  • How do I register for the race?

    • Register at THIS LINK. Registrations are available online only. Registration ends at 10pm on December 14th, 2018.

  • What is a "Beer Mile"?

    • The foundation of any true beer mile is built upon two things: drinking beer and running a mile. We will follow the most common format of the beer mile requires a single participant to drink a full-sized beer, run a quarter mile, then repeat the process three times. This results in the consumption of four beers and the running (or walking, or wheeling!) of four quarter miles (hence the beer mile). Participants who are on a beer mile relay team will only have to run one quarter mile lap, and chug one beer each. The entire process is timed. Read more here: http://www.beermile.com/.

  • Do I have to drink beer?

    • No! No drinking is required, but if you decide to, your beers are included in the registration price. Your recorded time will not be an official beer mile time, but we still encourage you to participate!

  • Can I walk?

    • ABSOLUTELY! You are encouraged to register in the I GOT LEGS wave if you plan to walk as we encourage ALL persons of ALL abilities to participate in the mile weather they run, walk, or wheel, and aren't obligated to drink beer.

  • What if the weather is bad?

    • Betty Carlton doesn't believe in whining. We are ReEnabling athletes who've been through the absolute worst personal storms. The Betty Carlton Beer Mile is a rain or shine event. Should there be inclement weather of flooding, there will be no rain date or rescheduling of the event; no refunds will be given. However, we will make every effort to provide a truly meaningful event despite inclement weather.

  • What kind of beer is provided for the Beer Mile?

    • Commonhouse Aleworks and Southern Eagle have generously donated beer to the event. Please stay tuned for beer announcements.
