Wappu is coming and so is the legendary beer relay of the Guild of Materials and Metallurgy students!

The time has come again to gather the thirstiest ones of Otaniemi to run around the department of materials science and engineering on the morning of April 30th. The starting signal will be given at 9:00 sharp.

A team consists of three runners and one anchor to make four people in total. The cost for participating is 15 euros a team, including the beer.

The relay will be run in the open and women’s series. The race has spots for the first 34 teams to sign up.
The sign up opens at 14:00 on 17.4.2024 in and closes on 24.4.2024 at 23.59.
NB! One member will sign-up for the whole team!

The rules of the beer relay for first-timers:
When the start signal has been given, the anchor begins drinking their first beer. When the anchor has finished drinking their bottle, the first runner starts running. There is a drinking checkpoint halfway through, wherein the runner is to drink one bottle of beer, supervised by an official judge. After the runner has finished his/her beer, the runner continues to the exchange point, where the anchor starts again. The laps are repeated until the anchor has finished their last beer (and challenged their liver). The team may be disqualified by the judge if they commit infractions, which ends their race immediately.

May the thirstiest team win!
