Man fulfills quest to eat more than 15 burgers during Macon Burger Week

Will Shoemaker was ready to taste them all.

MACON, Ga. — It's Macon Burger Week, and one man is taking full advantage.

Because of the pandemic, Macon Burger Week happened a little later than usual this year, with many participating restaurants offering their creations to-go to help thin the crowds, and Will Shoemaker was ready to taste them all. 

He ate more than 15 burgers in three days. Shoemaker says it's super-exciting to have the opportunity, so much so that he had to train for it.

"You know, it's a good thing to be able to eat -- I like that -- but it's also a risk to health. I have to walk anywhere from 5 to 9 miles a day to be able to eat and consume these calories," Shoemaker said.

You still have time to grab a burger or 20. Macon Burger Week ends on Sunday. Grab a bite and cast your vote for your favorite.
