2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships Press Release


World Championship Beer Mile returns to Austin December 1st, 2015

Austin, TX (Sept 23rd, 2015) - FloSports today announced the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships will be held December 1st, 2015, in downtown Austin at the Austin American-Statesman. Returning World Champion Corey Gallagher will face off against the best beer milers in the world for a shot at the sport’s largest prize purse and this year’s world title.

In 2014, FloTrack introduced a World Championship and professional meet standards to a sport that was previously underground and in many ways unofficial. Now in its second year, the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships returns to Austin with a new downtown venue, a partnership with theCHIVE and its Resignation Brewery as the “official beer,” and elite men’s and women’s fields that boast many of the top beer milers in the world.

"We are excited to bring the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships to downtown Austin," FloSports co-founder and COO Mark Floreani said. "With the new partners and investments, this year's event will be the biggest and best beer mile ever assembled -- but more importantly, it will be a blast!"

Free to the public and streamed LIVE on FloTrack.com, the 2015 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.

theCHIVE’s KCCO line of beers has been selected as the “Official Beer” of the event, and will be served to event competitors as well as available to attendees for purchase.

"theCHIVE was an early adopter of the beer-mile movement. The soul of our community revolves around giving back first, with drinking whilst running a close second," said John Resig, founder of theCHIVE. "KCCO Gold Lager is proud to sponsor the Beer Mile World Championship. I've challenged fellow Chiver Jake Morrow to the Beer Mile, and he will lose, because he is weak and lacks discipline. I will drink one extra KCCO Gold Lager after I beat him effortlessly, then sit back and relax with some beautiful women to watch him run his penalty laps."

Divisions at the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships include two open heats, a sub-elite heat where runners must submit their times and qualify to participate, a celebrity heat, and elite heats for both men and women to crown the beer mile’s 2015 World Champions. In addition, there will be relay divisions for local and national media, Austin tech companies, and more.

Last year, in the inaugural FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships held at Circuit of the Americas, more than 200 competitors from around the world participated in the race, led by Corey Gallagher who was crowned as the first true Beer Mile World Champion, finishing with a time of 5:00.23.

A common rite of passage for many track athletes, the Beer Mile requires participants of drinking age to consume a 12-ounce can of beer before each of four laps in a mile.

Understanding Resting And Maximum Heart Rate

Throughout the past years, business has combined the health and technology industries to create a society where fitness tracking has become a regular pastime. People have become more invested in their health and want fun devices to assist in that. These smartwatches and apps have made it easier than ever to know what your exact heart rate is, how many hours of sleep you get, or how far you run. However, with all the knowledge presented to you, it’s equally important to actually understand what those numbers mean to best achieve all of your fitness goals. A big part of this is knowing the different active and resting heart rate zones. 

Pre-Run And Post-Run Stretches

Stretching before and after your run can add a lot of benefits to your exercise routine. It allows you to warm up your muscles and safely progress into your run and also provides your body time to cool off and continue to activate your muscles. It’s important to set aside a couple of minutes before and after exercising so you can make sure you’re taking proper care of your body. 

The History Of Track And Field

Track and field has been around since the start of the Olympics in Ancient Greece in 776 B.C. It was created alongside religious events and celebrations for the Greek gods where men (no women were allowed) could show off their athletic abilities. From there it spread to the Romans who continued the games until the Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned them in 394 A.D. because of their ties to pagan beliefs.
