Scotland Beer Mile Team
Meet the Scotland Beer Mile Team
In the UK, the Chunder Mile is the beer running event of choice. The chance to compete with the world's best Beer Runners has led several Scottish athletes to try the more internationally popular Beer Mile. Since 2016, Scotland has been represented in three Beer Mile World Classic events.
In 2016, the trio of Tyler Deniston, Scott Stirling, and Johnny Currie competed at the Beer Mile World Classic in London. Tyler set a Scottish Record of 5:47.86. Scott finished in 5:39 but was unfortunately DQ'd for spillage. This also meant that Scotland did not have a full team of three for the team competition.
In 2017, the 2016 trio was joined by Matty Ralston for the BMWC. Yet again, Scotland's team performance was undermined by DQ's. Only Tyler survived in the results, and he had to run a penalty lap due to throwing up.

In 2019, a new trio brought Scotland back into the Beer Mile World Classic fold. Adam Johnstone, Andrew Taylor, and Chris Russell made their way to Berlin to be part of the action. Chris set a new Scottish record of 5:40.9, however Scotland's ignominious record in the team competition continued as a DQ left them with an incomplete team yet again.
