11. Robert "Sub 8" Killmier   10:49.0  M21Carlton Draught, from bottle  If there were a prize for worst performance on the day, this bloke would have his name all over it! Last years champion was never in it this time round.
12.Michael "Knees" Bertlesmier  10:57.0  M40Carlton Draught, from bottle  After 5 knee replacements, has forced the event organisers to introduce a veterans award for future beer miles. I have one word for you Knees, Inspirational!
13.Denise "Swiss Miss" Schaerer  11:36.0  F19Carlton Draught, from bottle  The Pride of Switzerland. There were no holes showing in this tasty piece of vintage ched!
14. Toby "Mr Incredible" Medlin   12:06.0  M22Carlton Draught, from bottle  A Vast improvement from last years dismal performance, and just quietly there is just enough left up his incredible sleeves for next year.
15. Tim "Skins" Smith   12:31.0  M19Carlton Draught, from bottle  After a year long retirement from running, the beer mile brought him back.
16. Adam "Pants" Didyk   12:47.0  M24Carlton Draught, from bottle  His voice might crackle like a school boy on the verge of losing his virginity, but Adam you can hold your head up high again son! Just remember to ware a belt with those pants.
17. Matt "Die in the Ass" Fallon   13:40.0  M24Carlton Draught, from bottle  In a further dent to his pride, Fallon couldn't quite go the distance again. At least he left his missus at home this year, saving himself a little embarrassment at least.
18.Jordan "Gerald" Massey-Harvey  13:42.0  M23Carlton Draught, from bottle  Jords stepped up in 07, after drinking only lights in 06. Does this mean you are a real man now? I think not. Perhaps once there are a few more hairs on your legs?!
19. Tony "Old Man" Symonds   13:50.0  M36Carlton Draught, from bottle  Symo has been training his whole life for this event, but perhaps he's 10 years too late

22. Courtney "Thompson" Ryder   14:59.0  F25Carlton Draught, from bottle  In her debut to competitive racing she'll be pleased with her 4th woman across the line tag. Apparently the Ryder's were celebrating hard later that night!
23. Peter "Gnome" Davis   15:21.0  M22Carlton Draught, from bottle  Made his way down from the Hills to have his first crack at the Beer Mile. Perhaps he shouldn't have bothered.
24. Daniel "Cheech" Matena   15:35.0  M25Carlton Draught, from bottle  Officially the worst SA Beer Miler of all time. Many attempts, many failures.
25.Gilbert "Fully Sick" Hyde  15:51.0  M21Carlton Draught, from bottle  Give this bloke a bike and there'd be no stopping him.
26.Choc "Side Lines" Lloyd  16:52.0  F20Carlton Draught, from bottle  Choc just goes to prove no matter how good you look it doesn't mean you can run and drink piss

28. Emily "Bluey" Hyde   18:13.0  F20Carlton Draught, from bottle  After cruisers in 2006, she stepped up a notch, but still came up empty-handed
29.Peter "Minor" Hyde  19:02.0  M18Carlton Draught, from bottle  Beaten by his sisters on and off the track. Check out the Hyde family website!
30. James "Polar" Boden   21:09.0  M19Carlton Draught, from bottle  Dubbed the 'orange flash' by those in the know, when it came down to it there was very little flash at all.
31. Laszlo "Evans" Dobo   22:49.0  M18Carlton Draught, from bottle  He's good with his pole, but not so good at the Beer Mile. Was nothing to vault this time around.

33.Iona "Experience" Halliday  25:08.0  F21Carlton Draught, from bottle  Our Victorian visitor was never in it.
34. Georgia "Dead Last" Kaidonis   25:53.0  F20Carlton Draught, from bottle  A big improvement on last year but lets be honest, she needed to! Still not a winner, but she won the boy on the night apparently.
35. Celeste "Stink" Knowles   27:54.0  F21Carlton Draught, from bottle  May have been the last competitor to finish, but word has it at least this female drank every last drop of her 4 of Carlton Draught's finest went down the hatch.
36. John "Young Girl" Creasey   DNF  M32Carlton Draught, from bottle  After claiming this was the biggest race of his life, disappointed to pull out at the last hurdle. Will be back bigger and better in '08.
37.Nathan "Big Guy" Bruce-Gordon  DNF  M23Carlton Draught, from bottle  Only 2 beers. Are you serious??? Where's the priorities? Although, at least he turned up.

Race Notes:

ANZAC Day the 25th of April 2007, and what a day it was. This is a day to remember the fallen, but also marks the 2nd annual running of the South Australian Beer Mile Championships.

Conditions were absolutely perfect for drinking beer and running a mile. Held under lights again at the Flinders University Ovals, 35 competitors decided something was missing from their lives, they needed to test their minds and their bodies, in what can only be described as the ultimate test of human will power these brave young/old soles took to the starting line of the 2nd Annual South Australian Beer Mile Championships!

"Brewed by horses," Carlton Draught was named the 2007 official race brew. After the race competitors enjoyed the free sausage sizzle put on by them for our brave competitors.

Many thanks for all of our competitors race organisers and officials for 2007. If you thought 2007 was big, the word has got out, 2008 will be huge!
