Chugging! Running! Barfing! - Free iPhone App Gets You In Shape For The "Beer Mile" Real Deal

13 September, 2018

The Beer Mile, which involves participants completing four laps of a standard 400 metre track while consuming four pints of beer, is well-known for making runners feel a little worse for wear. A new app created by Hunter Andrin entitled Beer Mile: All-Stars 2018 is vying to appeal to those that “love the beer mile but hate feeling violently ill after."

The app description continues: “Chugging! Running! Barfing! All the fun of the beer mile without the public intoxication. I mean, you can be intoxicated when you play, just maybe not publicly. Then again, who are we to judge!”

As with the actual event, the aim is to run and drink the beer in the fastest time. Using two fingers, users can control the movement of their virtual characters, making sure they don’t burp before the beer foam levels fill up. If this happens, the virtual runner will vomit and return to the start line.

The app is available on iTunes free of charge for IOS and Android devices.
