Mornington Chasers Annual Beer Mile

Date: Thu 17 March 2022
Time: 19:30

Chasers Beer Mile:

4 x {400m (pace=’don’t be sick’) [355ml recovery]}

Total 1600m hard, 1.42L recovery

Next Thursday is the hotly anticipated return of the Chaser's beer mile at Regent's Park dust track. 

After a tough training schedule culminated in Wokingham and Parliament Hill – we all deserve a break from 800m reps and instead punish our legs and livers in equal measure in a pedal to the metal 4 x 400m time trial with 355ml recoveries.  

For those who have not participated before – this is a terrific event, and the rules are as follows:

  • Each runner drinks four bottles of 355ml beer and runs 4 laps around a standard 400m running track (start with chugging a beer, then run a lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap - finish)
  • Competitors who vomit before they finish the race must complete one penalty lap at the end of the race (immediately after the completion of their 4th lap). Vomiting more than once during the race still only requires one penalty lap at the end

As you can see, this is perfect mix of pace, mental fortitude, tactical nous, and thirst

Please could you sign up using the link below so I can order the appropriate amount of beer

We will then be heading to the Princess of Wales by Primrose hill for a St Patrick’s Day social (of course non-racers are encouraged to spectate the event and/or join for the social)

The Chaser’s Beer mile was founded by Karl Baddeley, a Chaser who made a huge impression on the club during the time he was a member. Unfortunately, Karl lost his life earlier this year – and in recognition of his contribution to the club and this event specifically, we will be raising money for the British Heart Foundation (a link will be sent separately). For those who wish to race, a donation of £10 would be much appreciated.
