4th Annual CollaBEERation 5k & Brew Fest

April 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm


Results can be found here!

Join us, in collaboration with our friends Left Hand Brewing and The BOA System, for our 4th Annual Longmont CollaBEERation 5k & Brewfest on Saturday, April 7th! National Beer Day, could it get any better!

We are excited to announce that this year, the race proceeds will go to our The Left Hand Brewing Foundation. They do great things for our community and you will help them continue to do good!

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 and Brews with beer from Shoes & Brews, Left Hand Brewing, SKA, Old Mine Cidery, Big Thompson, Peppod Margaritas, Verboten Brewing, Tivoli Brewing and Grossen Bart amd live music from our favs The 90% 90s, and a sweet post-race expo!

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?? We’ve also got age group prizes for the top 2 in each age group – rewarding you with beer!

Feel like you need that little bit of extra help in your training to get that PR or feel great on race day? We’ve teamed up with local company RunLife Analytics to provide every participant with a free personalized 5k training plan leading up to the race. All you have to do is answer a few additional questions during registration and you’ll not only get a free training plan, but also be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win BOA shoes! It’s that easy! Training officially begins Feb 26th, but jump in anytime!

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.

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 after overall awards.
