Run Responsibly ...

Hilton Head Island's ONLY beer running event – for those runners that want a slightly different challenge to their normal run – or, for those beer lovers that may have a running problem. Whatever motivates you – come out and see how fast you can run 1 MILE and drink 4 BEERS (or, come out and see what someone looks like when running after 4 beers).

 

BEER?

BIG THANK YOU to River Dog Brewing Co. for signing on as the Official Beer Company for the Hilton Head BEER Mile. We will be serving their Riverwalk Empire Pilsner (5.6% ABV) - Riverwalk Empire is a light, refreshing, & snappy Pilsner that’s the perfect complement to life here in the Lowcountry. Expect really clean cereal-like notes, rustic hop flavor, and a clean finish. You’ll feel like a million bucks after one or two (or four!) of these puppies!
