3rd Annual Love Run FREE 5K

Our Free Fun Run starts with a bang on January 20, and we hope you will help us keep things rolling into February for our 3nd Annual LOVE RUN Free 5K Fun Run on Saturday, Feb. 17th! Let’s keep the ‘love running’ after Valentine’s day. We encourage everyone to show their love and keep things FUN!

For this event, we will be collecting donations for Talbot Interfaith Shelter as your ‘registration fee’.

The Talbot Interfaith Shelter is a voluntary interfaith-based service organization in Talbot County, Maryland. We are dedicated both to providing safe, temporary shelter to men, women, and children who lack adequate housing, and to raising awareness of the issues of homelessness in our community.  Our vision is that no one in Talbot County will ever have to spend a night on the streets, in a car or in the woods because he or she cannot find housing.  The Shelter is an interfaith organization sponsored and operated cooperatively by different religious faith groups who respect the individuality, confidentiality, and privacy of guests. Each member of the community is invited to volunteer in this effort.

The Shelter believes that all men, women, and children have an inherent right to adequate housing that is safe and secure. The Shelter is open to individuals of all races, genders, ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, sexual orientations and religions.

Here is a list of items that are always needed at the shelter:

Our FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN!  We keep things fun by having the runs set up as prediction races. What is a prediction race? We ask you to try and guess your finish time and then, the participant that comes closest to their official time is declared a race winner! Any participant that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a winner in our book. Sound like fun? You should come give it a try!

Online Registration is available HERE

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 8:00am. The race will begin at 9:00am. We ask all participants to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.

We hope to see you on February 17th!
