4th Annual Sole Mates 5k & Brew Fest

Saturday, November 4, 2017


We’re “about that life.”

Join us, in our 4th annual collaboration with Left Hand Brewing! 4th Annual – can you believe it??

The flat and fast 5k begins on the St.Vrain Greenway at Left Hand Brewing and continues through the trail system that winds under Sunset Blvd and over to Roger’s Grove. The race finishes at Shoes & Brews with Longmont-brewed-beer from LHB and S&B, live music, and a sweet post-race expo, with food and beer all included in your race entry! Along with having an awesome day of running, music and beer, you can know that your race entry helps give back to our community as we partner with The Left Hand Foundation as our partner charity for the event!

If you’re feeling rather fast on race day, you may even qualify to win your weight in beer from Left Hand Brewing! First place female and male runners will walk away with a keg of their choice, so start adding in the speed-work and the gains because how often do you have the chance to win YOUR WEIGHT IN BEER??

If you’re feeling less fast and more fancy, we have added the Best Dressed Category to our race again this year. Winners of this category will receive the sublime Left Hand Brewing Beer 4 a Year Certificate, which is obviously worthy of you putting in some effort on that costume you’ve been thinking about. Besides– the race is literally 5 days after Halloween so here’s another chance for you to get some use out of that m&m costume you’ve been hoarding for 12 years. You may need to put in a little more effort than an m&m though, because that’s been done TOO MANY YEARS. #zombieM&M?

If you’re not feeling fast OR fancy, you can just try your luck at being a random prize winner! Shoes, watches, apparel, nutrition, race entries, beer and MORE will be raffled off!
