Back to School FREE 5K Fun Run

The FREE 5K series continues with our Back to School race on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 9:00am!

Mark your calendars and join us for an event open to all ages and abilities.  Our course is ideal for four-legged friends as well as strollers too!

All of our races are ‘FREE’, but we do encourage participants to bring a donation to various charities and organizations.  Our goal with this event is to fill our local schools with additional school supplies for those in need for the upcoming school year.  Suggested items to donate include glue sticks, pencils, folders, notebooks, dry erase markers, loose leaf paper, and the list goes on and on!

As always, this is a prediction race – meaning you try to guess your finish time.  Anyone that guesses their finish within 10 seconds of your official race time will be declared a winner and receive a Gift Certificate for the shop.

Online race registration HERE.

We encourage everyone to complete online registration, but we will also have race day registration available inside the shop beginning at 8:00am on race day.  Bib pickup will also begin at 8am.  Pre-race meeting will begin promptly at 8:45am in our front parking lot at the store.  Race will begin at 9:00am.

Please plan to park in the St. Michaels Elementary School lot and make the short walk (2 blocks) down to the store for the race start.  There is one water station on course that participants have access to twice during the race.  We will also provide bottled water at the finish line as well.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON AUGUST 18!

Father’s Day FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run Series continues on Sunday June 17, 2018!

Grab your dad, and come join us for the Father’s Day FREE 5K Fun Run to benefit the St. Michaels Community Center.

Race time is 9:00am and on-site registration will begin at 8:00am. Please plan to arrive no later than 8:30am to complete your registration and pick-up your bib number.  Yes, this race will be chip-timed!

Remember, there is no registration ‘fee’, but we do ask for a donation for a local cause. This month we are collecting items to benefit the summer programs offered by the St. Michaels Community Center. The Center is in need of items such as juice boxes, small bottles of water, and individually packed snacks to provide to the kids that attend their programs throughout the summer months. Come out and help us give back to the community that has supported us these last seven years!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

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!

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 June!

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.

Plus, remember we are always looking for volunteers!  Let us know if you can help!
