Shoes & Brews along with our "Sole Mates" Left Hand Brewing nd Nike present the 7th edition of our fall race series. We could not be more excited to bring this race back, as we haven't been able to rock out since Sole Mates 2019, so it's going to be special this year.
With a focus on community, running, beer and high fives we put this event on as a celebration. And this year feels like a celebration to the return of races and return of all your smiling faces!
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 their beers after. Their response - "YES, but we will pay for the beers!" Amazing! We gave them idea of what was to be S&B and them know 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 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 7 years of running, beer and friendship.
