LOVE RUN FREE 5K Fun Run Results

Our 2nd Fun Run in the 2017 Series is in the books!  We had an AMAZING turnout on this unseasonably warm day for February, so please accept our sincerest thanks for your continued support.  Thanks to all of you, we will help stock the shelves at Talbot Humane!  Take a look at your haul!

We would like to take a minute and extend our apologies for the short course that everyone ran today.  We believe there may have been an arrow missing on the course to direct everyone down the 2nd cul de sac in Marea Terrace, which resulted in the course that most everyone completed to be around 2.8 miles.  We adjusted the distance in the timing system to reflect your pace for the actual course distance.  We will make sure to set up a cone for the next race so that you don’t miss the turn and get the complete 5K course!  Below is the link to the official results.  Out of the 78 participants today, we had 2 race ‘WINNERS’ and they are:  Todd Bellamy and Eric Griffioen!  Be sure to check in with Laura the next time you are at the shop for your prize!

Be sure to mark your calendars for our 2nd Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K event on Saturday, March 18th.  This event will benefit the SMHS After Prom Party, and we are asking that everyone bring a giftcard to donate to their door prizes.  Grocery cards, gas cards, restaurant cards, etc!  The After Prom Party is a safe, drug- and alcohol-free place for local teens to go immediately following the Prom, where there are activities, chaperones, music and PRIZES for them to win throughout the night!

2nd Annual LOVE RUN Free 5K Fun Run

Our Free Fun Run series started with a bang in January, and we hope you will help us keep things rolling into February for our 2nd Annual LOVE RUN Free 5K Fun Run on Saturday, Feb. 18th! 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 Humane as your ‘registration fee’. Talbot Humane has been serving our community for over 80 years, and your donations will keep their efforts going strong in 2017. For a list of items, you can check out their wish list on Amazon HERE. But like every animal shelter, they can always use pet food, pet toys, paper towels, towels, pet bedding, etc.

Our FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN!  We keep things fun by having the fun 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!  Some races we have no winners, and some races we have had 10 winners!

Online Registration is available HERE.

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 7:30am. 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 18th!
