Love Egg-Nog? Enjoy Running? Why not both at the same time? Each year since 2014, the Estes Park Cross Country team holds their 'Egg Nog Mile'. The rules are easy enough: runners line up, chug a cup of eggnog, race around the track, chug another glass, and so on, until they have completed a mile (please refer to 'Egg Nog Mile' rules below for details). The catch, of course, is that runners may not drop their cups or throw-up at any point in the race. So if you're ready to tackle this challenge, wear your required best holiday outfit and bring your A-game because anyone can win AND anyone can get disqualified!
Although the 'Egg Nog Mile' may leave some runners with a bellyache, the race is all in good fun and give participants an opportunity to 'Tis the Season' of the Christmas/holiday season.
* This event is not advised for lactose intolerant individuals.
** You will consume more eggnog calories than you burn on this run.
*** Egg nog is not an electrolyte replacement sports beverage... stay hydrated.
