Running, Distance running, 5K



We’re “about that life.”

Join us, in our 4th annual Sole Mates Collaboration 5k & Brew Fest with our friends Left Hand Brewing and Hoka! 4th Annual - can you believe it??

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 & Brews with Longmont-brewed-beer from LHB and S&B, live music, and a sweet post-race expo, with food and beer all included in your race entry! Along with having an awesome day of running, music and beer, you can know that your race entry helps give back to our community as we partner with The Left Hand Foundation as our partner charity for the event! woo woo!

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 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. 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!

And no matter how fast or fancy, make sure you’re in tip top shape by race day with a FREE
TRAINING PLAN from RunLife Analytics. The 6-week program is personalized to the unique
needs of every individual runner. You will get your free link to start your 5k training plan with registration confirmation page!

If you have a four-legged training partnerer - please bring them out with you for race day! We've made some special arrangements at the after party to treat our pups. We've got Romero's K-9 Club & Tap house out along with Ivan's All Natural Doggie Deilights giving out puppy treats and swag just for them! #loveyourtrainingpartner #dogfriendlyevent But please remember, this race typically sells out and it is a busy day so just make sure your friend is ready for crowds. You can always grab them a treat to take home!
