Chunder Mile Rules

Popularized in the United Kingdom, the Chunder Mile is similar to a beer mile except competitors drink a full imperial pint (20oz, 568mL) of beer before every lap instead of the beer mile standard 12oz (355mL). There is also no specification of the drinking vessel, but pint glasses are preferred for the speed in which the beer can be chugged. 

Also unique from the beer mile is that chundering (vomiting) is allowed without penalty in the Chunder Mile. Competitors only run 4 laps regardless of whether they chunder or not.

The current Chunder Mile World Record is 4:57 by Dale Clutterbuck of England. You can watch his video here to see a Chunder Mile in action. Clutterbuck is the only person to break 5 in the Chunder Mile, and is also the only person to go under 5 minutes for both the beer mile and Chunder Mile.

Official Chunder Mile Ruleset
  1. Each competitor drinks four imperial pints (20oz, 568mL) of beer and runs four laps around a standard running track (start with chugging a beer, then run a lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap, then beer, then lap - finish).
  2. Beer must be consumed before the lap begins within the transition area. The transition area is the 9 meter zone between the starting line for a mile race and the finish line of a 400m track.
  3. The race begins with competitors lined up on the mile starting line, drinking the first beer in the transition zone described in the step above. This ensures competitors cover a complete mile. Competitors can walk/move in the transition area while drinking, but all beer must be consumed in the transition area before setting off to run a lap.
  4. Women also drink four pints of beer and run four laps.
  5. Competitors can drink out of any vessel as long as it is no less than 568mL (20 Oz) in volume, which is the standard imperial pint in the UK.

  6. Beer must be a minimum of 5% alcohol by volume. Hard ciders, hard sodas, and other alcoholic sugary drinks will not suffice. The beer must be a fermented alcoholic beverage brewed from malted cereal grains and flavored with hops. 
  7. There is no penalty for chundering (vomiting) during the race. Competitors do NOT need to run an extra lap. 
  8. When attempting a performance for the official records, it is recommended to provide video evidence of the race and prove that all beer was sufficiently drank. This can be achieved by tipping the empty beer vessel over your head after each chug to verify an empty vessel.
