Micro Marathon gives new meaning to the phrase beer run. Hosted by the Circle Brewing company out of Austin TX, the 0.5K Micro Marathon (yes that's right half-kilometer) is about speed and technique. You have to be fast and you gotta be smooth.
Runners must carry 2 cups full of beer through the 1,640 foot long figure 8 course setup in the parking lot of Austin's Circle Brewery without allowing the beer to spill out past the marked lines on the cup. Spill too much and you get the DQ
The Race is all about fun and the $35 entry fee goes to a to local food bank. If you are in the Austin area check out the event Micro Marathon
