Ypao Beach, GUAM
The World Record setting GUAM BEER MILE Classic is set to run its 4th Annual race at Ypao Beach on the island of Guam this November. Guam, the United States’ western most territory, has taken advantage of the Beer Mile popularity to increase participation in each of their three previous years.
An Island Dimension
According to the Charlie Epperson, founder and race coordinator, it was never their intent to grow the race to world record stature. Epperson offered, “During the first year, we wanted to celebrate the return of one of Guam’s Olympic runners who competed in London and a Beer Mile seemed liked the best way to celebrate a long season.”
After surveying possible sites to host the event, it was clear that a beach setting would provide participants with an amazing backdrop. The idea of dragging runners to a track for a brutal event such as the Beer Mile didn’t seem necessary since the goal wasn’t to break the speed record but to celebrate our health and wellness. The location has stuck as the GUAM BEER MILE Classic goes into their fourth year at Ypao Beach Park in the village of Tumon.
The race tends to be a little more difficult for competitors since they are forced to run 200 meters out and back, all on the sand, before consuming their next beer. Last year’s event drew 81 finishers that completed the course in times ranging from 7:19 to 29:06 and a whole bunch of DNFs.
For the People
It was determined in the first year that the GUAM BEER Mile race would be ran as a fundraising event. During the first year, the race generated over $1,500 that went to the Wounded Warriors Project, since a good segment of the participants come from military serving backgrounds. As the second race approached, a member of the sponsoring organization, the Guam Running Club (GRC), was a victim of a brutal home invasion and the committee selected to donate money to the family to assist with travel expenses during her recovery in San Diego. Last year, the race generated over $3,500 that was given to the GRC to promote youth athletics on Guam. Epperson noted, “It is pretty special to turn a fun loving and good natured event such as the GUAM BEER Mile into a catalyst for promoting health and giving in our community”. This trend will not change for 2015 as race directors have set a goal of raising $5,000 to assist their neighboring island of Saipan that is recovering from the devastating Typhoon Soudelor that struck in early August.
While reading an article on the upcoming Beer Mile World Championships held in San Francisco, Epperson noticed that a few other races claimed to host the largest Beer Mile event. After researching results on beermile.com, it was confirmed that we surpassed the 2007 Victoria, B.C. Beer Mile race that previously held the record with 77 participants. The expectation is to have 400 + runners complete the race in November.
