Race Notes:

The 4th Annual Dave Smart Beer Mile got underway last night under wet and cold conditions. This didn't stop a record number of participants and spectators from coming out and supporting the event which raises money for melanoma research through the Dave Smart Foundation.

The race got underway at 7:00pm with 77 participants and approx. 100 spectators which created a great atmosphere for the event which is used as a fundraiser for melanoma research. As always the Frontrunners in Nanaimo brought down a big contingent of runners and the Frontrunners in Langford had most of their run club out for their first beer mile.

2005 Canadian Marathon Champ, Jim Finlayson, was first off the line and never looked back as he stayed amazingly consistent through each lap with splits of:

Beer, Lap
1: 7 sec, 65 sec
2: 10 sec, 69 sec
3: 11 sec, 66 sec
4: 12 sec, 69 sec

The 800m mark was hit at 2:31 and the 1200m mark at 3:47. With an controlled last lap he was in at 5:09 to cut another 11 seconds from the world record. Last years time of 5:20 was done with Keepers Stout from a can and this years record was done with Granville Island Winter Ale from a bottle (5.5% alc, 341 ml).

Frontrunners Langford co-owner, Nick Walker, showed a big improvement in his second ever beer mile to place 2nd overall in 5:57.
