Shoes & Brews along with our "Sole Mates" Left Hand Brewing and Hoka present the 9th edition of our fall race series.
With a focus on community, running, beer and high fives we put this event on as a celebration.
A little backstory on our friends and Sole Mates - Left Hand Brewing ..... When Shoes & Brews was just a vision and not yet a reality. We asked our friends at LHB if it would be okay to start a run club from there and if they could start a tab so we could pay for the runners beers after. Their response - "YES, but we will pay for the beers!" Amazing! We gave them an idea of what was to be S&B and what we were hoping to start in our community and a need that we felt wasn't being meet and they immediately jumped on board to support us! And then - a beautiful friendship was born of businesses supporting other businesses and a tradition that Shoes & Brews has taken into account on how we look to pay it forward to other businesses and within our community.
So, Sole Mates is special. It's a special way for us to celebrate the community that got us started and the community that continues to support us through 8 years of running, beer and friendship.
