Please post how much and how frequent they had to drink the eggnog. Then these times are unbelievable. Stomach wrenching good.

I believe it's a cup before each lap including the first lap.

Each lap started with a 12-ounce cup of eggnog. (The cup was 18 ounces, and each cup was filled quite a bit over 2/3rds full. Likely 13-15 ounces per chug, but better more than less.) There were 4 chugs before each lap.

As the track we started on didn't have a mile start line, we started right behind the relay exchange zone, so it was 1610 meters, instead of the 1609-point meters, for the full mile. No eggnog 1,600m for us!

I know there's a video out there, but it hasn't gotten to me yet. I'll do the best to email Albert when one comes up.

Crazy fact: Duncan Bradley, upon completion of the race, walked back to the table, and started leisurely drinking more eggnog. Gross.
