The world’s top six booziest runs

Harpoon 5-Miler, Boston


The Harpoon Brewery in Boston, USA hosts an annual five mile race that raises money for ALS research. Last year they poured 115 kegs of beer, which is the equivalent of 12,000 glasses of beer. With only 5,000 runners, the Harpoon 5-Miler is definitely one of the booziest races we’ve heard of. A charity race has to be one of the best excuses to drink beer: it’s all for a great cause!
