E2NY Beer Mile

August 27, 2019, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Escape to NY (E2NY) is a unique event that enlists two teams to run non stop from Toronto to New York City on a journey that will redefine a running community and seek to inspire others to move with purpose.

ESCAPE TO NEW YORK is calling out all track stars and bar stars to come get their competitive juices flowing like a good pint of draft !

Limited heats so sign up soon.

The Run Down: Beer mile is a 1-mile drinking race that combines running and speed drinking. The race takes place on a standard 400-metre track. The race begins at the starting line with the consumption of a small beer can or 12oz cup of beer, followed by a full lap around the track. This process is repeated for 3 more laps. Following the completion of the fourth running lap (and four beers), a competitor has finished (survived) the race and gets all the beer mile glory!

If you have any questions, please contact Sean Hamilton or E2NY coordinators .

Prizes for the winner of each heat TBA!

Sponsored by Junction Brewery and Town Barber

What is Escape to NY?

Two teams of twelve runners will depart Toronto on October 29, 2019. Runners from each team will relay, non-stop across 900 KMS of varying terrain – around Lake Ontario, across the US border in Buffalo, down through the finger lakes towards NYC – finishing in Central Park on the day before the New York Marathon. The Escape to New York aims to raise $10,000 for Skylark walk-in clinics and counselling programs and services.

We are thrilled to partner with Escape To New York to raise funds and awareness for mental health services
for children, youth & families.
