Chug, Run, Repeat!
In 2017, the SWIRCA BrewMile will be a standalone event on Saturday, June 17th on Riverside Drive on Evansville’s Riverfront. This event will be the official kickoff for ticket sales to SWIRCA’s BrewFest held on Saturday, September 23rd at Historic Bosse Field.

So How Does It Work?
The race will begin with a 12 ounce beer that must be consumed in the “Chug Zone” before the runner can begin their lap. Four laps, four beers. We will have three different race categories- competitive, relay or fun run. The beer will provided for the runners.
