RUNNING. COMMUNITY. BEER.
We’re “about that life.”
Join us, in collaboration with Left Hand Brewing, for our 3rd Annual Sole Mates 5k & Brewfest on Saturday, November 5th! We are excited to announce that this year, the race proceeds will go to our Longmont Habitat for Humanity project, The House That Beer Built! For more information on The House That Beer Built check out HTBB.
The flat and fast 5k begins on the St.Vrain Greenway at Left Hand and continues through the newly opened trail system that winds under Sunset Blvd and over to Roger’s Grove. The race finishes at Shoes and Brews with Longmont-brewed-beer (see all breweries below), live music from the Ninety Percent 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??
If you’re feeling less fast and more fancy, we have added the Best Dressed category to our race 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!
