The FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships returns to downtown Austin on Saturday, December 17th at 12:00 pm CT, at the Austin American-Statesman, bringing together the best beer milers in the world for a shot at the sport’s largest prize purse and this year’s world title. You can join this year's event in a number of different ways....a running in the open races or team relay races, as a spectator (free admission!) or online by joining the convo with #FloBeerMile! Free to the public and streamed live on FloTrack.com, the 2016 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships will feature a beer garden (21+), food trucks, music and competitors ranging from the world’s top-ranked beer milers, Olympians, local businesspeople and average Joe’s alike. In addition, Oskar Blues line of beers will be served to event competitors and will be available to attendees for purchase during the event. Beer miles, which have been an unofficial rite of passage in the track and field community for years, require participants of drinking age to consume a 12-ounce (355ml) can of beer that has at least 5% alcohol content before each of four laps in a mile.
