5th Edition CollaBEERation 5k & Brew Fest


Join Shoes & Brews for their 5th Edition of CollaBEERation 5K & Brew Fest held on Saturday, April 6th, 2019 – presented by Shoes & Brews, Salomon & Oskar Blues Brewing! 

The 5K race series is full of things like running, beer, high fives, food, music, friends, and giveaways jammed into one day of fun!

The 5K run/walk is followed by a unbeatable after-race expo full of beer & cider, music, food and giveaways! EVERYTHING is included in your race entry!  This year, things are going to be a little different on the course as there is flood reconstruction on the normal route near the brewery. The new course is yet to be finalized, but will be announced as soon as possible.

There will be two different start times for the races. An elite wave, starting at 9:30 AM and then our open start at 10 AM. Anyone 22 minutes and under will fall to our first wave. Prizes will be awarded for different categories at the end of the race. Once your race finishes you’ll enter the epic after-race expo party at Shoes & Brews with food, beer, cider, live music and an unbeatable bib raffle giveaways!

If you’re feeling rather fast on race day, you may even qualify to win your weight in beer! 

Feel like you need that little bit of extra help in your training to get that PR or feel great on race day? Shoes & Brews has teamed up with Longmont-based company RunLife Analytics to provide every participant with a free personalized 5K training plan leading up to the race.

This year, part of the race proceeds will go to the Long’s Peak Hospitial Foundation. The LPHF provides resources and invests in families, friends and neighbors here in Longmont. The foundation helps provide value-added services, education, patient financial assistant and community health programs that are not covered by insurance .
