You can mark the Great Boston Beer Marathon (starting this Saturday, June 14, 2008 at 10:30am) down as the most extreme summer event of the year… next to Preakness.
The Great Boston Beer Marathon is an annual bar crawl that visits 26 of Boston’s best bars. Now in it’s third year, over 2,300 people have confirmed attendance for the Great Boston Beer Marathon, Part 3 Facebook group, and the founders are looking to set a new attendance record.
I have taken part in the Great Boston Beer Marathon since its 2006 inception. A rowdy crowd of 400-500 people took part that year. And in 2007, the number of participants swelled to over 1,200.
At this Saturday’s event, we can expect a similar jump in numbers, as founder Paul Reitano looks to set the Guinness World Record for the largest pub crawl in history.
If you live within driving distance of Boston, I would suggest you register for the event online and attend–because you will have the time of your life.
