Like running? Enjoy drinking beer? How about combining the two?! The Beer Relay allows participants to do just that. Join the fun on Saturday, May 30th in Lyons. The Beer Relay is the first ever endurance trail running and beer drinking race. It is held in conjunction with Oskar Blues Burning Can Festival and the Town of Lyons Outdoor Games. Teams run a 5km trail course, relay-style, for up to six hours. Each runner can down a 12-ounce Oskar Blues beer before his or her lap for a two-minute deduction taken from the lap time. The team that completes the most laps in six hours wins!
