Burgers & Beer has been a Universal Sole tradition for over 7 years! It started as a grass roots event from Universal Sole's Lakeview store to bring people together for an easy fun run of 3 or 5 miles coupled with craft beer and burgers from various Lakeview neighborhood bars! It has always been about bringing the Chicago running community together! A lot of folks wanted a race as well and here we are in our 5th year! One monday night, in July, we invite you out with your fellow runners and enjoy a quick 5k run in the city followed by Shake Shack Burgers & Begyle Breweing beer to follow in our post race beer garden! We have also invited some other guests to join us in the beer garden so stay tuned for more details!
