We also host our own group runs and training programs, including our new Be You Couch to 5K training program. Please select the links below to check out the events and programs that we sponsor or put on ourselves.

SHOES-n-FEET carefully selects and only recommends events that we think will be a fantastic experience for our customers.We are excited to have many great events to recommend to you. If you participate in a sponsored race, please come in the store and tell us about it.  We value your feedback on the races and enjoy hearing about your experiences!
