Last week, the 100/100 was attempted by some RIT-alumni.. they did it in 5 days. The beer/mileage tally rolls on but in the mean time, it should be noted that once again UR can't compete with RIT in anything.
Robin Thomas (YP where are you?) did this triple 100 at the Isle of Man Festival in the late '70's. I was a sometime teammate and my lifes regret is that I was not there to see it that year. He also ran 10 miles and 10(UK) pints in like 2hrs 3 mins or something.
Oops sorry just read the thread, and YP's effort has been noted already. I would add that having extensive experience of brews on both sides of the pond in the '70's, the triple 100 could NOT have been done with the US gnats piss of the time - way too gassy.
There are 168 hours in a week, you can accomplish the mileage doing 7 miles a day Twice a day.
Beer can be consumed at a rate of 2 beers every two hours.
There should be a rule that mile 100 and Beer 100 have to be done inside of a beer mile.
BUMP FOR DOING IT NOW
so I have wanted to do this since I read this post 2 years ago...
this is the plan I have poster on the facebook group:
(the runs are measured from the start point...I DONT live there. I did 2 years ago. I live within 400 meters of the start/stop place)
this is the facebook description (I started today, the analysis is after this post):
Barrett (for those that don't know, the McGill track coach) always thought that I drink way too much.
Since there is no changing his mind, I am going to embark on the one event that should prove him right: The Double Century
It is the ultimate running and drinking challenge. 1 week to run 100 miles and consume 100 beers.
I will need company for the miles and the drinking. So, come and join me for some casual miles (I won't be going that quickly) and come over to drink some brews with me/let me know if you are going out and I will try to join you.
the tentative plan is as follows (it is front loaded with miles and back loaded with beer):
morning- to the end of the canal and back, 17.75 miles http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3832482
afternoon- 2x parc lafontaine, 6 miles http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3832496
evening- June corec soccer league championships (as long as suit up beats four points or none) or 2x parc lafontaine, 6 miles
total: 23.75 or 29.75 miles
76.25 or 70.25 miles left, 90 beers
morning: 2xcross+1xJM: 10.75 http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3832523
evening: big loop botanical gardens: 10.25 URL for this route is: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3832538
55.25 or 49.25 miles left, 82 beers
morning: big loop botanical gardens: 10.25
evening: 2x lafontaine: 6
+ 10 beers
39 or 33 miles left, 72 beers
morning: 2x lafontaine: 6
evening: 2x cross+1JM: 10.75
22.25 or 16.25 miles left, 56 beers
morning: 2x lafontaine: 6
afternoon and evening: --
16.25 or 10.25 miles left, 36 beers
morning: 1x botanical gardens: 10.25
afternoon and evening: -- or 2x lafontaine if needed: 0 or 6
total: 10.25 or 16.25
0 miles left, 24 beers
morning runs will be at 9AM, except for monday in which it will be at 8AM, the one afternoon one will be at 1 and the evening runs will be at 5:30
the beer will be drunken throughout the day everyday except for monday and tuesday where it will be 1-2 after the morning run then the rest after the night run.
the last day will start drinking at 8AM and continue until I am done or in the hospital.
HELP ME OUT FOR THIS AWESOME ADVENTURE
(I tried to invite people who were in montreal or close to montreal, feel free to invite other people who I forgot to invite)
ok... so hopefully everybody saw my precurser.
I didn't want to post anything but I am drunk so F-it.
I did todays morning run in 124 minutes, 62 out, 62 back (it is almost a mile less on the way back). I bonked hardcore with 3 miles to go. then watched world cup/ TV until the end of the ARG. game. I drank 7 beers in that time... When I made the plan, I had not considered how much easier I would get drunk, but after 2 beers, I was def. tipsy.
I then ran 6 miles with my roommate in 55 minutes. I had the soccer championships last night so I wanted to be sober for them. I did nothing until them. It was corec, 5 guys, 5girls ont he field. we only had 5 guys so I had to play. We went up 1-0 then I missed an open net, then they scored to tie it at 1-1. Halftime came, I drank 1 beer by myself, then in the second half we got a pk with 2 minutes left...we scored
so I got the championship mug!!!
I drank 1 more after the game, 1 more dureing dinner, and 1 more in the shower (yes nobody can verify it but I will not waste $1 on a beer I wont drink). so I was at 11 for the night. My friends were having a party so I figured I would show up with 5 more, I drank those 5, bought 2 more and drank them...so my total is 18 beers for the night.
pics and more stories tomorrow. I am running then will post stuff!
-the McGill Redman
day 2...21 miles (as planned), 79 minutes in the morning, 76 at night (10.75 in the morning, 10.25 at night)
then 14 beers so far, will do 1 more now before sleep
so when I fall asleep, it'll be 54.75 miles and 67 beers to go
10.75 morning (2x cross,+JM, NOT the botanical gardens)
6 evening as planned,
to get to 43-48 beers
Just for reference I am the RIT runner who completed the feat in 5 days and finished the week with 125 miles and 150 beers. So you have a long way to go before you reach the big leagues.
RIT > UofR (it's science..)
Settle down Smarty Pants. You bring shame on yourself and your family by pulling these "my beer stunt was better than your beer stunt" shenanigans on the outset of his quest. Let the man have his moment in the sun.
after 4 days,
3rd day, did 17.25 miles, 16 beers.
I drank 16 beers then went to a bar. They didn't have cans of beer so I bought a pitcher, after the pitcher I went home and proceeded to puke and then ended up waking up naked in the bathroom. since I puked, I will not count the pitcher from the bar as beer drunk.
today, I woke up so hung over that I could not drink or run. I had work until 4, then napped until 6, then went to the montreal impact game (pro soccer, they lost 2-1 to the vancouver whitecaps), drank 1 beer there, then drank 8 tonight.
so 38 miles and 42 beers to go.
tomorrow is canada day! but I have to ran a double instead of the single in my plan. goal: 28 beers left, 16 miles after tomorrow
Hey man, I'm rooting for you. Best of luck!!
Where did he go? I hope Mr. Redman didn't die.
First time reading this thread and it was amazing every step of the way! Definitely on of the top non-training threads.
It's been awhile since I checked out this thread, but every now and then when I need a little self esteem boost I like to dig it up. Why this post is on here, I can't understand.
So, 2 years after the 100/100 was thoroughly and undeniably completed, for the sake of doing it, someone else did it faster. Well done. How this can been called a competition is something I don't understand. I set out to complete a task, I completed that task. I was not aware that I had to race against someone 2.5 years in the future. I drank 100 beers and ran 100 miles, in the snow, mostly alone, during finals week, with no definitive knowledge of anyone having done it before. To say that the 125/150 or whatever the final count was is better than the 110/107, isn't exactly comparing apples to oranges, but it is certainly comparing granny smiths to red delicious. Different circumstances, different expectations, different goals. Is Dub Myers a greater miler than Roger Bannister? Is Dave Lim a better mountain climber than Sir Edmund Hillary? (Who?) Numbers may say yes, history may say no. We both did something a little crazy and a little stupid, if only for pride and the joy of testing our limits. In the case of my attempt, it was more about entertainment and showmanship than anything else. Why not take satisfaction in our own accomplishments rather than inaccurately trying to diminish the others?
I live in Manhattan and bartend. I run about 110 miles a week regularly. IF a competition is what you really want, then by all means, lets each take a weeks vacation, get out some video cameras, and see what legs, guts, livers, and testicles are really good for. I'm sure the faithful readers of letsrun would be thrilled.
