Coming to a town near you.....
Birmingham Uni used to do "Micks Caff" race when I was there in the 80's.
You used to down two pints of beer run about two miles to Micks Caff eat a full English including a mug of tea run back to the Uni and then down two more pints.
I never won but was second twice, but our department won the race two years running.
It was then banned after someone was sick down a bus queue

No sense of humour, some people!
I've read the full article and it did make chukle, sadly they only give the plain doughnuts.
One of the best races in the USA is Miller half marathon were all finishers get a six pack of Miller genuine draught. The funny thing about this race is that all the homeless hide in the bushes at the finish and try to steal the six packs from the finishing area.
There is also the Hooters half marathon in Florida were at the end you are greeted with Chicken wings and beer.
Chicken wings and beer ... not what I would be expecting at the end of the Hooters half mara
I did the beer race for three years in a row at Surrey Uni. Teams of three, bound together, mixed gender, half a pint at pretty much every pub in Guildford. Untying yourselves meant disqualification, which was interesting when we needed to empty our bladders.
I have no idea what position my teams were in by the time we got back to campus,and was too pissed to care.

Eating challenges are not big and they're not clever!(But I still hold the record for eating an octuple eggburger from Greasy Joe's burger van in 1989, as far as I'm aware.)
