Keep running. Run local. Support your community. Let's all run together, separate.
Our communities are struggling right now; closures, quarantines, and shutdowns. Each of us has been effected in multiple ways and we are all doing the best we can to keep those around us safe and stop the spread. As a community-oriented run shop and brewery, these shutdowns have kept us from our favorite part of our business - the people - the community - the comradery over a drink.
So we thought. . . . . how can we have that at a distance? How can we motivate our community to come together, while not being together? How can we keep S&B going strong?
Let's host ourselves a little social distance run! The 1st Annual, and hopefully only, Shoes & Brews Run Together, Separate - 5k, 10k, or half marathon.
So here's how it works:
From Friday 4/3 through Sunday 4/5 we challenge you to run or walk - 5k, 10k, or half marathon. You can do this all in one, or over the three days! Run the trials, run the road, run around your house, you choose!
Challenge yourself to get out and see the sun shining, feel the wind blowing, and keep your mind sharp. Know that others are out there, practicing self-distancing and getting those miles in with you. Let it inspire you that this is only temporary and that we will be back together for miles and high fives very soon.
As runners we are lucky that our gym is always open, any hour, any day of the week and all you need is your shoes! It's a way to keep us motivated, keep us sane and get us connected as a community.
Challenge friends and family to join in on the run or walk.
