Snow Day Plans: Run Secret Snow Day Beer Mile with Run215

Running + beer + SNOW = Best day ever?

The snow is a comin’, friends. If you can already feel the cabin fever kicking in, know that you don’t have to stay on your couch all weekend long: Run215 is putting on what sounds like maaaaybe the best snow day activity ever — a pop-up BYOB (or BYO soda, for the non-drinkers) beer mile in the snow tomorrow. The event is called — wait for it — #FREEZYCHEEKSPHL, in honor of this weekend’s postponed Chilly Cheeks 7-Miler.

If you aren’t familiar with a beer mile, it goes like this: You drink a beer, run a quarter of a mile, repeat three more times, then you’re done. And you’re a littttttle bit drunk. Fun, right? After everyone runs — hopefully very carefully so as not to slip — and cleans up, the group will head to a bar to continue the snow day festivities. Obviously, you’ve got to be 21 to join in on the beer run portion of the event, and Jon Lyons of Run215 says “We are expecting everyone to be respectful, responsible adults.”

Some details of the snowy beer mile — start location, which bar you’ll head to afterward — are top secret, but there’s a Facebook event page up now, which Lyons will update with the location tomorrow. He’ll also be keeping people in the loop on Run215’s Instagram and Twitter. Right now, the time is marked as 1 p.m. tomorrow, but that could changed based on the storm’s severity.

So, what are you waiting for? Go grab yourself four beers, sit back, and wait patiently for more info. And be careful out there, friends!
