Burgers & Beer has been a Universal Sole tradition for over 5 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 followed by 312 Goose Island Beer and Fizz Bar & Grill Burgers! It has always been about bringing the Chicago running community together for a once a month event where friends can catch up, folks can make new friends and everyone enjoys the company while heading out on a fun run in Chicago's historic Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods. With the growth and popularity of the Burgers & Beer Fun Runs, folks have asked if we were ever going to do an official Burgers & Beer race! Well, here we are, the 3rd annual Burgers & Beer 5k is officially here on July 14, 2014 at Soldier Field! The Burgers & Beer 5k is proud to partner with Special Olympics Chicago! A portion of race proceeds will go to supporting Special Olympics Chicago!
The Special Olympics mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
