Whilst training for an event some people will abstain from alcohol. There’s a name for them – boring bastards!
My fastest ever half marathon time was achieved whilst drunk. Would I have gone faster if I’d been sober? Probably not – I was so hungover and desperate for water that I ran the legs between water stations as fast as possible.
If it’s possible to drink and run, is it possible to drink and triathlon? After a swift Google I’m proud to announce the best and definitely drunkest race ever invented – Beer-athlon!
It comprises a beer swim, a beer bike and beer run. It will take place in Austria because that the only place I could find a beer swimming pool.
Starkenberger’s Castle in Austria doesn’t just have the world’s only beer swimming pool. It has seven! Each pool contains 42,000 pints of beer! That’s 294,000 pints. Enough to keep a Scottish man in beer for at least a few hours. 🙂
If anyone gets out of the pool alive then it’s onto the bike leg. For this I’ve sourced the worlds best beer bike.
This bike allows you to “refuel” on the move. The distance of the ride is however far it takes to finish both kegs.
The finale is provided by a beer I spotted in the pub – Running Beer.
Each athlete has to down a pint and then run 100m in a straight line. The winner is the first person to achieve that.
I can’t see what could possibly go wrong with this format. 🙂
