Onward Shay/Payette Boise Beer Mile FAQ's

Is this a typical "beer mile"?

No, our beer mile is different as the rules are different. In the typical beer mile, you drink a beer every quarter mile. Since our mile course is along the greenbelt, we have to follow the rules and not allow alcohol on the greenbelt. But don't worry, you get to drink a beer before and after the mile. 

How do I get in for free?

Do I need to be registered for Onward Shay to run? 

Absolutely not! If 5K's, 10K',s, half or full marathons aren't your thing, just come drink some beers and run a mile! Or just come hang out and drink some beers!
