Join us at Cannonsburg Ski Area for the THIRD ANNUAL Beer Mile at the Burg - October 31, 2020!! 

We WILL have soft cotton long sleeve shirts for our Beer Mile - design coming soon!! This is optional... BUT we will order some extras so you if you change your mind and would like a shirt, you can pick one up at registration. Sizes are limited and will be $15. Cash ONLY please! NO CARDS! Shirts are totally optional. 

We are using the base of Cannonsburg with little elevation. You will not be running to the top of the hill. You are welcome! The course map is posted on our Facebook page! Actual race start times will be adjusted as we get the final numbers in so STAY TUNED!

Race day check in / registration will start at 5:00 pm EST. Wave one will start at approximately 6 pm. 

We will have waves again this time...but will be lined up according to your MILE PACE and not your age group! Keepin' it EASY! 

The beer - OR - cider MUST BE purchased at Cannonsburg due to the state liquor law. You will see the menu of beer / cider selections later on your registration to pick from. Cost for the 4 pack will be $10...Cost for the 2 pack will be $5. (lightweight division is 6 oz at a time). This will be paid later in your registration in addition to your registration fee of $20. ( $20 registration + $10 beer fee + RSU fee = total cost)
