As expected, world record holder Corey Bellemore (Canada) dominated the men's championship race at the 2023 Beer Mile World Classic.

Much like the men's 5-minute beer mile barrier that was once thought impossible a decade ago, the 6-minute barrier for women stood the test of time — until the 2023 Beer Mile World Classic. Shelby Houlihan crushed the barrier, finishing in 5:43 with a 63-second final 400m with four beers in her stomach.
