- After you chug four beers in a mile race (fun, right??) drink even more beer at Rusty Bull's after party.
If you've never heard of a beer mile than you've likely never run one (lucky you). The concept is simple: Run a quarter mile, chug a beer, run another quarter mile, chug another beer. You get the idea — four laps, four beers. If you are in fact braving the bodily challenge, your ticket gets you four beers (no guarantees how long they last in your gut), a race bib and timing device, a parking pass, and one Rusty Bull pint glass.
Spectators at the Coliseum (the race takes place in an adjacent parking lot) can enjoy watching runners, of course, as well as perusing goods from local food trucks, The Misfit Chef and Johnny Poppers.
After the race head to Rusty Bull for the after party from 7-10 p.m. where you can enjoy live music from Whiskey Diablo, food from Herd Provisions, and an award ceremony. The winning relay team takes home a big keg and individual winners take home mini kegs — assuming runners want to drink any more beer after the mile.
Proceeds from this event benefit Friends of North Charleston and The Miracle League, with money specifically helping fund the 24,000 square foot Miracle League Baseball Field and inclusive playground in North Charleston.
