Name Time Gender Age Beer Notes
1 Robert Killmier 6:37.0 M 23 From Can Tooheys New Practice makes perfect, and this bloke has had plenty of it!
2 Ryan Cox 6:47.0 M 34 From Can Tooheys New Did it for his kids.
3 Greg Nightingale 8:03.0 M 20 From Can Tooheys New Who?
4 Chris Burckhardt 8:14.0 M 27 From Can Tooheys New Best in character on the night. Has Thiele's measure to date 2-1.
5 Michael Killicoat 8:26.0 M 24 From Can Tooheys New Matthew Scarlett would have been appalled with his effort. Big effort to come over from Sydney though. Jet lag?? Pulled the big one later in the night
6 Simon Thompson 8:55.0 M 27 From Can Tooheys New Managed to keep his gear on for this one.
7 Fiona Hobbs 11:29.0 F 18 From Can Tooheys New The envy of female beer milers throughout the land. An impressive debut.
8 Tim Smith 12:21.0 M 19 From Can Tooheys New Was striking in his outfit, but not so striking on the track. Good to see some things never change
9 Shane Thiele 13:04.0 M 31 From Can Tooheys New Had the weight of Ireland on his shoulders. Couldn't quite live up to the pre-race hype
10 Adam Bishop 13:30.0 M 25 From Can Tooheys New Still recovering months later. Hair of the dog bisho. Good to see he iced his achilles after. Soft.
11 Matt Fallon 13:50.0 M 24 From Can Tooheys New Left the Jet ski at home. Could've done with it given the wet track.
12 Matt Ferber 13:58.0 M 21 From Can Tooheys New Arrggh. Doing pirates proud. Well, for the first lap or 2 anyway.
13 Hayden Cook 14:13.0 M 24 From Can Tooheys New Bombed out in the main event, but ran a sub 59sec 400m plus beer some 10mins post event.
14 Chris Bull 15:13.0 M 22 From Can Tooheys New When he lost his hair he must've lost his strength (and beer drinking ability). Perhaps a full body shave next time??
15 Matt Dineen 15:45.0 M 21 From Can Tooheys New First rangger home. A good effort. Your people would be proud
16 Laszlo Dobo 16:05.0 M 20 From Can Tooheys New Is this event legal? Perhaps a visit from the cops next year? A 30m pole vault run up is not adequate training for this one
17 Andrew Steele 16:08.0 M 26 From Can Tooheys New Best chuck of the night. Will be remembered forever for that alone.
18 Sophie Evans 16:30.0 F 17 From Can Tooheys New 2nd chick home. 2009 might be her year.
19 Drew Sutton 17:24.0 M 28 From Can Tooheys New Silky skills with the round ball. No time for that at a beer mile buddy
20 Toby Medlin 18:52.0 M 24 From Can Tooheys New The body suit left nothing to the imagination. Apparently Luke liked the look from behind.
21 Luke Williams 19:04.0 M 29 From Can Tooheys New Wrong drugs.
22 Emma Hill 22:29.0 F 26 From Can Tooheys New Impressive debut. Will be back for more in 09.
23 Paige White 22:45.0 F 20 From Can Tooheys New Is possibly still chucking. Will she ever do one of these ever again?
24 Tony Symonds 25:10.0 M 39 From Can Tooheys New The veteran of the field. Spent the time to enjoy his 4 malty ales.
25 Zoe Kennedy 27:27.0 F 25 From Can Tooheys New May It Last Forever
26 Mark Lange 34:49.0 M 28 From Can Tooheys New We're all still recovering from seeing him shirt off late in the event.
27 Brad Fisk 78:22.0 M 18 From Can Tooheys New Clever Under Night Temperatures
28 Rhett Cook 78:22.0 M 25 From Can Tooheys New His performance in an Austin Powers movie was far better than this effort
29 Emma Dobbin DNF F 18 From Can Tooheys New Couldn't quite get the first beer down, but looked the part.
30 Jodie Cook DNF F 25 From Can Tooheys New Determined to put in a better showing in 2009. Just quietly, would want to ;-) Everyone's favourite beer miler



Race Notes:

The Beer Gods smiled upon the field with rain falling heavy before and after, but not during!
29 gutsy competitors took to the start line despite the inclement weather.
