Disclosure: Mountain Mile Beer Challenge, Fleet Feet, and Yee-Haw is not encouraging irresponsible or dangerous behavior. You are held responsible for your own actions. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS:
1. Each competitor (men and women) drinks four cans of beer and runs four laps (start - beer, then lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap - finish).
2. Beer must be consumed before the lap is begun, within the transition area.
3. The race begins with the drinking of the first beer in the transition zone to ensure the competitors run a complete mile.
4. Competitors must drink the entire canned beer and the cans should not be less than 355ml (the standard can volume) or 12oz (the imperial equivalent). Bottles may be substituted for cans as long as they are at least 12 oz (355 ml) in volume.
5. No specialized cans or bottles may be used that give an advantage by allowing the beer to pour at a faster rate. ie "super mega mouth cans" or "wide mouth bottles" are prohibited.
6. Beer cans must not be tampered with in any manner, ie. no shotgunning or puncturing of the can except for opening the can by the tab at the top. The same applies with bottles - no straws or other aids are allowed in order to aid in the speed of pouring.
7. Each beer can must not be opened until the competitor enters the transition zone on each lap.
8. 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). Note: Vomiting more than once during the race still requires only one penalty lap at the end.

9. Participants are required to tip the empty beer can or bottle over your head at the end of a chug to verify an empty vessel.

10. No complaining. Drink your beer and run! Have fun, smile and be safe!
