About this Event

Welcome to the first event of its kind in Cassadaga, NY;

Cassadaga Fireman’s Beer Mile

To make this event possible, we are going to get creative in our timing, our course layout and volunteer interactions with participants to comply with all Covid protocols in place by the State of NY and the Chautauqua County Health Department.

Saturday, May 29, 2021
10am 

Held rain or shine.  No refunds will be given. It’s a fundraiser.
Village baseball fields, behind the Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES Academy at Maple Avenue (175 Maple Avenue)
Fundraiser event to purchase $45,000 worth of equipment needed to maintain the firetrucks.
$30 per person (must be 21 years of age) includes 4 beers, post race meal of hot dogs, chip and beverage, and a race t-shirt. Please note that the t-shirt order will be made on May 1st.  If you register past that date a t-shirt is not guaranteed.

Individual event, not for relay teams.

Limited to 200 participants per covid protocols.

This race is fun and social and is NOT a qualifier for the World Championship (yes there really is one of those).  Produced by Wilson Endurance Sports and benefiting the Cassadaga Volunteer Fire Department.

Competitive categories only: The first three males and first three females will be manually timed.  Please keep your race bib on the front of you for the timers.

Social Beer Milers: There is no cut off time, you may walk. You will, however, not be permitted to leave the course and come back to finish.

Rules:

  • Drink one full can of beer within the sectioned off Beer Zone and pour the foam over the top of your head once you have consumed it all proving that you have completed the first task.
  • Run one loop of the 1/4 mile course. Simply follow the designated course and back to the Beer Zone
  • You will repeat the above steps 3 more times.
  • If you “toss your cookies” PLEASE use one of the garbage receptacles along the course for this purpose. There is a one loop penalty for this offense. Thankfully you don’t have to consume an extra beer, just run an additional 1/4 mile.
  • No offensive, intimidating, or dangerous behavior will be tolerated.

No dogs allowed.

Awards:

Top 3 Overall Male and Female

Post Race Food:

Included in the cost of registration you will be provided with a hot dog, chips and beverage made on site by the Ladies Fire Auxiliary. Additional food will be available for purchase. All proceeds to benefit the fire department equipment fund.

Dress Code:

Dress code is anything you wish. Costumes are not required but welcomed, it will make for great race photos. Covering your body is absolutely mandatory – this is NOT the Naked Beer Mile

(no, we don’t think there is one of these, and we most likely will not be creating one in the future. Ewwww. )

Designated Drivers:

We want everyone to have fun and be safe. Please make plans to have a designated driver join you to give your body time to neutralize that amount of beer.
