Back to School FREE 5K Fun Run

Here we go again!  Our next FREE 5K Fun Run is set for Saturday, August 12th.  This month our charity partner is our local schools. We are asking for donations of school supplies so that our hard working teachers do not have to spend their own money on supplies for students.

Some suggestions are:
Anti-bacterial Wipes

Remember that on-site registration and bib pick up begins at 7:30am at the shop.  We would love to have everyone checked in no later than 8:30am.  We will have a brief race meeting at 8:45am in the front parking lot, and will cross Talbot Street together in time for the race start at 9:00am.


Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, then make the short walk down to the shop for the race.  August is sure to be a scorcher, and as such we will have cold water available for all participants both at the water stop and at the finish line.

And don’t forget that this is one of our PREDICTION runs. You will be asked if you want to guess your finish time. If you come within 10 seconds, you are eligibile for a prize!!!

Finally, don’t forget that we partner up with many local merchants in St Michaels, who offer special discounts to our runners. Just head in to town, with your bib, and reap the rewards!!

We want to thank the 30 participants that came out on a steamy July Saturday morning to join us for the 3rd Annual “I Thought They Said RUM” Free 5K!   Your generous donations will go a long way to stock the shelves for our friends at Talbot Humane!

Despite the heat, we had quite a few speedy runners out on course this morning!  Congratulations to Adelaide Cummins who was our lone winner, guessing her finish time within 3 seconds!  Adelaide, be sure to stop by the shop for your prize.  Below are your official results.  Special shout out to Erin Spurry, who along with her husband, Jesse, came out before the official race to complete the course as part of her commitment to doing all 12 of our runs in the series this year!
