The Beer Runner Podcast: Lewis Kent's Guide to the Beer Mile

Launching on Global Running Day, the brand new Beer Runner Podcast features Canadian Lewis "Hollywood" Kent. Kent was the first beer miler to break into the mainstream, appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

He has won multiple beer mile world titles and was the world record holder prior to fellow Canadian Corey Bellemore. His 4:47 beer mile time at the 2015 Flotrack Beer Mile World Championship is his unofficial personal best (not run on a standard running track). His best time on a standard track is 4:51.

The Beer Runner Podcast: Lewis Kent's Guide to the Beer Mile

In 2015, the world’s best beer milers were gathering in San Francisco for the World Beer Mile Classic. It was like the Olympics for the beer mile.  

I flew out from my home in Milwaukee to write about this event for DRAFT Magazine. In the middle of this scene, I met the team from Canada, and a quiet but confident 21-year-old Lewis Kent. Lewis told me all about his plan. He knew he was an underdog, but he was confident that he could pull the upset. 

Fast forward to today. Lewis Kent is now a published author who has a new book coming out called A World Champion's Guide to Running the Beer Mile: A Manual and Memoir of Running, Chugging, and (Not) Throwing Up. 

Lewis Kent did end up winning that race where I met him in San Francisco. Actually, he crushed the whole field. And that set off a media frenzy and fascination in him and the beer mile. He appeared on The Ellen Show and countless other media outlets while still in college. 

This summer, he’ll make his beer mile comeback at the World Beer Mile Classic in Berlin. It’s been nearly four years since we first met, and I caught up with Lewis before his book comes out to talk about the whirlwind of his to fame and what he’s up to now.
