Beer mile world record holder Corey Bellemore had a stellar 2019 summer racing season on the track, with the beer and without.
Bellemore places 2nd at the Canadian National Championships, wins the Beer Mile World Classic, and run a 3:39 1500m PB in Sweden.
In 2014, the 5-minute barrier was broken for the first time. Now, there are 11 men who have run sub-5 and the world record stands at 4:33, set in October 2017. Will we see this mark taken down in 2019?
The Beer Mile World Classic is just one month away (August 3 in Berlin, Germany), so it's time to discuss who the contenders—and pretenders—are for this year's beer mile world championship.
On August 11, 2018 at 2:00 PM, the top beer milers from around the world were assembling at an undisclosed high school track just outside of Vancouver, B.C. for the 4th annual Beer Mile World Classic. Nine of the top ten beer milers of all time were in attendance to compete for the world title and attempt to shave a few seconds off their respective national records.

He reveals all about the common question 'How does one train for the beer mile?'
