SHOES-n-FEET is your resource for the many races, walks, clinics and fitness activities in your community. In the store, around Bellevue, San Francisco and beyond, there are tons of ways to keep active and on the move.

At SHOES-n-FEET we love promoting fitness in all its forms. We carefully select road races and walking events to sponsor that are safe, fun and reliable. We focus our support on local events in local communities close to our stores in Bellevue and San Francisco. 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.
