Barstool Sports brings us the inspiring story of Wisconsin’s Beer Belly Two, a two mile run to benefit children’s charities. That sounds pretty good, right? Two miles isn’t too terribly much of an overexertion and everyone likes helping the little ones. But wait! It gets so much better. Rather than downing glasses of water and/or sports drinks, participants chug beer along the way. Awesome! Racer Doug Burmeister expected to take an hour to complete the race since “you know, there’s a lot of beer stops.” Another participant, Mike Marin enjoys the race because “This way the wife allows me to have a couple of beers because you’re doing something.”
Barstool Sports wonders what the Boston Marathon would be like if racers fueled up on Sam Adams instead of oranges and H20. We don’t think the serious marathoners would be down with that, but a two mile beer-fueled dash sounds like our kind of sporting event.
