Welcome to the 2nd Annual Cassadaga Fireman's Beer Mile!

Held successfully in 2021 with Covid protocols in place.  All current guidelines set forth by the Chautauqua County Health Department will be followed as it pertains to your health and safety. 


Saturday, May 28th at 10am


Village baseball fields, behind the Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES Academy at Maple Avenue (175 Maple Avenue, Cassadaga, NY). Course is on grass.

WHY : Fundraiser event to purchase $45,000 worth of equipment needed to maintain the firetrucks.

This race is fun and social and is NOT a qualifier for the World Championship (yes there really is one of those).  Produced by Wilson Endurance Sports and benefiting the Cassadaga Volunteer Fire Department.


Drink one full can of beer, sponsored by Southern Tier Brewing Company , within the sectioned off Beer Zone and pour the foam over the top of your head once you have consumed it all proving that you have completed the first task. Run one loop of the 1/4 mile course on a grass covered field.  Simply follow the cones and back to the Beer Zone You will repeat the above steps 3 more times. If you "toss your cookies" PLEASE use one of the garbage receptacles along the course for this purpose. There is a one loop penalty for this offense. Thankfully you don't have to consume an extra beer, just run an additional 1/4 mile.

Social Beer Milers have the same amount of fun, but no running is required. 

No offensive, intimidating, or dangerous behavior will be tolerated. No dogs allowed.


Follow the signs off of Maple Avenue and park on the fields.
