2nd Annual Tacky Prom FREE 5K Fun Run

Spring means PROM Season!  And that means it is time for our 2nd Annual ‘Tacky Prom’ Free 5K in the TriCycle and Run Fun Run Series!   That’s right, we will be running in dresses, sequins, suits, hats…but we don’t recommend high heels!

So….go dig through your parents (or your grandparents) closets, and find the tackiest of dresses or suits to wear as you join us for this FUN RUN on Sunday, May 14 2017!  Check the thrift stores, check the local consignment shops….but remember you should be able to RUN in whatever you decide to wear!

We can promise some photographic evidence for years to come after this event!

Did you know that May is Melanoma Awareness Month?  And as such, we will be collecting sunscreen to be donated to the local watermen community immediately following the event.  Those that serve to fill our tables with nature’s bounty day in and day out are exposed to the sun on a daily basis.  Many of those that head out on the Chesapeake Bay and it’s tributaries to make their livelihood have already suffered the sun’s effects and have been treated for melanoma.  Many are still in danger of the sun’s brutal attack.  Join us in helping give back to the community and grab a can or a bottle to donate!

You probably know the drill by now, but our Fun Run races are prediction races!  Meaning that you don’t have to be the first person to cross the finish line in order to win the race, you just need to guess your finish time by the closest margin in order to be declared an official winner!  Anyone that guesses their time within 10 seconds will be a race WINNER!

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE HERE!

On-site registration and bib pick-up will begin here at the shop at 7:30am.  The race will begin promptly at 9:00am.  Participants are encouraged to arrive no later than 8:30am.  We also ask that everyone plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, located on Seymour Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the shop.

We will have a brief race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am to review the course details and any special offers for participants immediately following the race.

Come join us for a great event, and remember that our course is kid-, pet-, and stroller-friendly!  All ages and abilities are welcome!!

Jellybean Jog FREE 5K Fun Run – April 15, 2017

Our FREE 5K Fun Run Series continues, so come out and join us for the Jellybean Jog 5K on Saturday April 15, 2017!  Race time is 9:00am and on-site registration will begin at 7:30am.  Please plan to arrive no later than 8:30am to complete your registration and pick-up your bib number.  It’s EASTER, and rumor has it that the Easter Bunny may make a visit to our race course and hide a few eggs along the way.   Last year’s easter eggs held some great prizes inside!

We believe in having FUN, and we will continue the fun with our winners being determined by who can guess their finish time by the closest margin.  If you can guess your time within 10 seconds, then YOU will be a WINNER!

Remember, there is no registration ‘fee’, but we do ask for a donation for a local cause.  This month we are collecting non-perishable food items to fill the shelves at the Christ Church St. Michaels Food Pantry.  Come out and help us give back to the community that has supported us these last five years!

As usual, this event is open to everyone.   All ages, all abilities, and even pets are allowed. One requirement….HAVE FUN!  We hope to see you in April!

Online Registration is OPEN.

Please remember to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk to the shop for the race start.  Pre-race meeting will begin at 8:45am in the front parking lot.

BONUS:  Bring a couple extra bucks to support the Bay Hundred Tides Softball team, as they will have a Bake Sale set up out front!
