5K Race and Brew Fest.... sound crazy? ..... but what if it wasn't??
Join us for the second 5K race in the collaberation series between Left Hand Brewing Company and Shoes & Brews. Race from Brew to Brew. After the race, enjoy Longmont brewed beer at the brew fest and after-race expo. Sampling beer while checking out the newest running shoes, sounds pretty perfect to us! Local Longmont Breweriest pouring beer after the race include: Left Hand, 300 Suns, Grossen Bart, Oskar Blues and Shoes & Brews
Not many things in life pair as well as a run/walk with friends along the beautiful St. Vrain river followed by a party with great beer, food, music, socializing, and awesome giveaways. Run local! Drink local!
The race will begin at Left Hand Brewing's taproom and end at Shoes & Brews. There will be free shuttle service on Left Hand Brewing's Wake Up Dead limo between the two locations after the race. Or it is a short walk on the St. Vrain trail to get back to your car.
Sign up includes an event customized 24 oz insulated water bottle from Polar, entry into the after race expo & Longmont brew fest along with raceday/packet pick-up discounts on running gear at Shoes & Brews.
In support of our community part of the proceeds will go to The Left Hand Brewing Foundation. Check out more information on them as they do great things for our local community. http://lefthandbrewing.com/about/community-involvment/
