Start Date


Activities: Virtual race, 1 Mile

Join us in support of members of our community by participating in the PYRC Virtual Beer Mile!  Part of the proceeds for this event will be donated to help support the following in our community.

Officer Rick Leach

Rick has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and will need a double lung transplant to save his life. He is currently under the care of Duke Hospital and attempting to obtain a spot on the transplant list. Due to the substantial cost of the surgery, lifelong medications, and medical expenses, fund raising efforts are required in order for him to attain placement on this list. Sergeant Leach served the Holly Springs Community for over 25 years as a police officer, school resource officer and Sergeant over the SRO Division. Let’s come together as a family to show Rick how the impact of his lifelong work has made a lasting impression on our community.

 STXBP1 Foundation & Camden Jones

STXBP1 Foundation, a 501(c)3 dedicated to raising awareness and finding a cure for STXBP1 Encephalopathy, a rare neurodevelopmental condition and genetic epilepsy.

Heather & Matt Jones son, Camden, has a genetic microdeletion and was missing 4 million base pairs, including the STXBP1 gene.  The deletion of this gene resulted in a very rare neurological disorder with only about 300 patients diagnosed worldwide. They are such an important part of our Holly Springs and PYRC community and hope you will help us support them in their journey.

How It Works

After you register you are ready to go and can complete your race at anytime or in any location.  Find a safe place to run/walk, inside or outside, get your beverages ready, and GO! Chug (or sip, it's up to you) a 12oz beer, run/walk 0.25 miles, chug a 12oz beer, run/walk 0.25 miles ... you get the idea.  Four Beers, 1 Mile, it's that simple!  Each participant will receive a really awesome shirt and probably have a few stories to share with friends! Want the challenge, but beer is not your thing or not 21?  No problem!  You can substitute the beer with any other carbonated beverage and still participate.
Not a runner? You can walk, skip, jump, whatever you would like.  This event is about the fun and support, not about time!

While it is not required, we do strongly encourage you to purchase your beverage of choice from one of our awesome breweries or bottle shops. At a minimum, PLEASE support NC Breweries!


Registration for the PYRC Virtual Beer Mile will run from 06/10/21-8/2/21.  You can complete your race anytime between the day you register and 8/09/21.
