Cody Beer Mile Cancelled due to Covid-19 in Cody, WY

It is with a heavy heart and tears in my beer that I have come to the decision to cancel the 2020 Cody Beer Mile.  

It was a mere 2 weeks ago that we were confident in proceeding with certain safety precautions in place.  Unfortunately, a LOT has happened in the past 2 weeks, and the fear is that a lot more is yet to come with regards to Covid-19 in Cody, WY.  

While most of our local cases seem to be managed by merely staying at home (so far), I don’t want to know or be left wondering if the Cody Beer Mile was one of those events that furthered the spread and caused our friends and family to be sick. I also don’t want to be a reason for our local businesses to suffer due to employees needing to self-quarantine for merely being in close proximity to someone who may be unknowingly positive.  

All current registrants will be receiving refunds - please be patient while I figure that out.  Looking forward to a bigger and better Cody Beer Mile 2021!  

Wash your hands, wear your mask, and stay safe my friends.  See you in 2021.

Started in 2018 as a pre-cursor to Yellowstone Beer Fest and benefiting Western Bear Foundation, this event quickly took on a life of it’s own...

4 beers in 4 quarter miles make up the infamous Beer Mile. Think you can hang?  

This is the Cody, Wyoming version. Run as an individual or on a relay team of 4.  This year's Cody Beer Mile will take place Friday, July 17th, 2020 starting at 6pm.  All FINISHERS receive a finisher's T-shirt.  1st place winners receive a very swanky Cody Beer Mile trophy.  This event is open to spectators and will feature chip timing, a beer garden, DJ music, and games.  Packet pick up & beer garden open at 5, races start at 6.

This event is based on the classic, and commonly accepted Beer Mile standards.  Find those on the official Beer Mile site:

We are now happy to offer a Bud Light Seltzer Mile for those who require a Gluten Free option, as well as a Coca-Cola mile for those who opt not to consume alcohol!!  Participants must be 21+ to participate in the Bud Light Seltzer Mile and 18+ to compete in the Coca-Cola Mile.  If you would like to run as a relay team and have one or more team members using Bud Light Seltzer or Coca-Cola, please contact the race directly directly:  

Unfortunately, the Bud Light Seltzer Mile and Coca-Cola cannot be posted to results due to 'official' rules on, but you can still have a damn good time!  

This event is brought to you by Buffalo Bill Cody Races and benefits Western Bear Foundation.
