Beer and running enthusiasts combine to celebrate 10th annual Stawell Beer Mile

Stawell Grampians Gate Caravan Park hosted its 10th annual Beer Mile event on Sunday, bringing together a love for beer and athletics into one entertaining spectacle.

Site owner Marianne Braam said the event added to the long list of activities available to residents and visitors in the Stawell area.

“The Beer Mile is just fantastic,” she said. 

“It is at the time of the Stawell Gift, so the area is buzzing with people and a lot of athletes come down and participate in the Beer Mile.”

Ms Braam said a “huge” number of people attended the event and was something she encouraged more people to consider.

“The event is full of laughs and good memories,” she said.

“It is a good way to get out on the weekend and get involved in all the excitement the Stawell Gift brings to town.”

The inaugural Beer Mile women's winner was also the 2006 women's 120 metres Stawell Gift winner and event organisers encouraged others to continue the event’s rich tradition.
