Racine MultiSports Introduces the Antietam Brewery 5K and Beer Mile

By Laura Oates January 29, 2018

Racine MultiSports is excited to partner with the Antietam Brewery to bring you a new event, the Antietam Brewery 5K and Beer Mile. This will be the twentieth race Racine MultiSports owns and operates. The Antietam Brewery 5K and Beer Mile will debut on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the Antietam Brewery in Hagerstown, Maryland. The main event will be a
5K road race inviting runners, walkers, and families to attend. The beer mile will be a smaller event with a maximum of
30 participants for those 21 and older. Both races will start and end at Antietam Brewery. The 5K will navigate on the paved roads near the Brewery (lightly rolling) while the Beer Mile will be four laps around the building on a paved surface (flat course). Each lap of the Beer Mile will begin with the consumption of 12 oz. beer, provided by Antietam Brewery and included in the price of admission, totaling 4 laps and 4 beers before crossing the finish line. Participants have the option to sign up for both events since the Beer Mile will begin after the 5K finishes. We encourage all 5K participants to stay and enjoy watching the Beer Mile, it’s sure to be a sight to see!

Race director Ken Racine stated, “The “Beer Mile” event has been gaining in popularity over the past few years. However, only a brave few have given it a try. Some top runners have set some incredible records (Men’s Record is 4:33.6 set by Corey Bellemore in 2017 from Canada, Women’s Record is 6:08.0 set by Erin O’Mara from USA) and you can find events all over the country. Most beer mile events are held on a track but some have taken to the streets.”

Included with your 5K or Beer Mile race entry, participants will get one free beverage provided by Antietam Brewery. Under 21 will get a soda, 21 and older will get a choice of soda or a craft beer. Also included is a race shirt, free race photos, custom pilsner glass finisher award, 32 oz. custom growler award for podium winners, live music, and bib chip-timed with instant results. Post race food, and plenty of beer, and other beverages will be available for purchase.
