Our 2017 Fun Run series started with a BANG today at the Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run! Once again, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our local running community. We collected various cold weather items (both new and lightly used) to be distributed to our local schools here in the Bay Hundred region. We received everything from hats, scarves, and gloves to sweaters and winter coats. The picture below is everything we collected from our 60+ participants today! (Plus, we even had some donations come in from community members that did not participate, but wanted to help!)
We had 4 official winners in our ‘prediction’ race today, including one who was just 11 years old! Congratulations to Collin Phelps, Thomas Hutchinson, Ashley Chroniger and Debbie Herr Cornwell, who all guessed their finish time within 10 seconds of their recorded time! Come by to see Laura at the shop for your official prize.
OFFICIAL Results are below:
We would like to thank our community partners that supports our participants with generous discounts following each event. Special shout out to Eastern Shore Brewing who offers $1 off pints and flights and Carpenter Street Saloon, who offers 10% food purchases following each event.
Our next event is set for Saturday, February 18th and it will be our 2nd Annual Love Run to benefit the Talbot Humane Society. Stay tuned for further details in the next week!
