Why You Should Watch The 2016 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships
The perfect cross between drinking games and sports takes place Saturday night.
A field of amateur and elite competitors will test their beer chugging and running abilities in the 2016 Flotrack Beer Mile World Championships.

If you've never heard of the beer mile, athletes chug a beer with 5.o percent ABV or above in a designated zone and then run one lap around a 400-meter track. This is repeated until a total of four beers have been consumed and four laps equaling a mile have been run.
Oh, and if you puke before completing the fourth lap you you have to run a fifth penalty lap, but do not have to chug another beer.
As grueling as the event is, the world record was set this summer in the Beer Mile World Classic by Canada's Corey Bellemore at an unbelievable 4:34.35.

Take it from someone who has competed in this masochistic event, it's exceedingly difficu;t running with a stomach full of beer and not throwing up. On the other hand, watching other people puke their brains out is a lot more enjoyable.
If you want to witness the world's top athletes compete at the pinnacle of beer chugging and running ability, tune into the FloTrack stream Saturday at 12 p.m. Central Time.
