Runners will begin in the parking lot in front of Carolina Brewing Company and, after drinking their 12oz beer/milk, will proceed out of the parking lot, and take a right onto Thomas Mill Road. After running 0.10 miles (walking & crawling are acceptable), runners will make a u-turn and head back to the parking lot to begin the whole routine again. There will be a 10 foot transition area at the starting line where runners will grab their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th beer/milk. According to beer mile rules, runners are required to consumer their beer/milk in this area only. On the final lap, runners will continue straight on Thomas Mill Road after the turn around area and run through the finish line.
Those participating in 2 and 4 person relay teams will follow the same format as above. Team members will wait for one another in the 10 foot transition area. Runners must be in the transition area before thier teammate is allowed to begin consuming their beer/milk for the next leg.
