Anyone got any suggestions for a marathon-themed beer?

Also, is anyone else running the Adelaide Marathon in a couple of weeks?

I’d say massive carbs with low alcohol ha ha ha

All of the runners I know are nuts and drink beers straight after running a 100ks. 

However I do like your Maris Ahtanum London ale mix.

Running is stupid.

Just to add weight to how stupid I think running is, consider that I couldn't feel my nuts for a day (and my little fingers didn't fully recover for a year) after a 24 hour bike rice I completed, which I thought was freaking awesome. That's how how I feel about running.

I wouldn’t say too many forummers who frequent a homebrew forum would be seasoned athletes 😂😋

A beer for a marathon, I would wont 0 fizz. No hops. Sweeter the better. 

A beer themed for a marathon, would be something with a slow smooth taste that sits on the palate for an extremely long time. 

As for being a crazy runner, well no normal person will run 42k.

KR was thinking about this after work. 42.2 IBU with the malt/hops/yeast you suggested?

Ok so Ahtanum is proving to be difficult to find - how about this ...

  1. MAR(athon)is Otter malt
  2. African hops? (because all the good long-distance runners are from there)
  3. 4th gen US05 (because that yeast is running it's own marathon)
  4. 42.195 IBUs

Yakima valley has some South African hops on its site. Been thinking about trying one or two of them.

Looks like I've got an extra week to think about this one now, so all suggestions are still welcome!

Bloody hell, I’m sick as a dog right now, just five days out from the race 😞

Bugger dude, Is it your first? Just do the typical fluids, and rest with plenty of healthy eating. Best of luck 👍

What is your expected finish time you were wanting?

Drown the sickness with alcohol. Alcohol fixes everything😂
