Description

The 3rd Annual Shoes 'N Brews is HERE--NOW with a Two-Person Team Relay Option!

A collaboration between The RUNegades (Shoes) and The Conshohocken Brewing Company (Brews), this FLAT, FAST, POINT-TO-POINT race on the SRT will take you from Conshohocken to a rockin' afterparty on Bridge Street in Phoenixville.

At 26.2 KM this "metric marathon" is 16.28 miles--basically a half marathon plus a 5K. It's perfect for marathon training OR for anyone who wants more than a half marathon but is not quite ready for a full.

Not up for taking on all 16.2 miles by yourself? Team up with a running buddy and split the course in two with the ALL NEW TEAM RELAY OPTION! The exchange will occur at mile 9, right under the 422 overpass near the Betzwood parking area at 1400 Sullivan's Lane in Norristown, PA. 

Date: Sunday October 2nd
Time:
8:00 AM 
Course: Point-to-point from the Conshohocken Brewing Company in Conshohocken to Phoenixville on the SRT, finishing under the Gay Street Bridge in Phoenixville. For those in the two-person relay, the exchange will occur at mile 9, where the SRT goes under 422 near Betzwood Park. Check out the course map here: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/4532418298
