“I Thought They Said RUM” Free 5K Fun Run

That’s right, it’s back!  Once again, we have partnered with our friends over at Lyon Distilling Co. to bring you another “I Thought They Said RUM” Free 5K.

Join us on July 13th and make sure you keep your bib to take down to the tasting room!

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.

As always there is no registration fee, however we do ask that you bring a donation to a local charity in our community. This month we are asking for donations for Talbot Humane. Any and all pet items are welcome! Come out and help us give back to the community that has supported us these last eight years!

You can also check out their WISH LIST 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 on July 13th! PLUS, when we say RUM, we mean RUM! Our friends at Lyon Distilling Company will be opening their tasting room doors early for participants immediately following the event. Stop by with your bib number for a taste of locally made spirits right here in our beautiful town! PLUS, your bib number will get you an exclusive RUM RUNNER discount of 10% off!

Please remember to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk to the shop for the race start. The 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!

4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues into 2019, and we hope you will join us for our 4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K on Sunday, March 17th! Not only is this our 4th Annual event, this event also marks the 4 year mark for our FREE 5K Fun Run Series here at TriCycle and Run.  Our first event was held on March 14, 2015 when many of our friends and followers joined us for the Epic Pi Day Free 5K.

A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity/beneficiary partner.  For this race, we will be collecting gift card donations for the Sts. Peter and Paul After-Prom Party.  The gift cards we collect will be used as door prizes throughout the night at the 2019 After-Prom Party event.  Help us reward the students of Talbot County that choose to remain drug- and alcohol-free on prom night.  We are a small shop serving a small community, and we want to make sure we are supporting EVERYBODY in our community that finds themselves in need.

Encourage everyone you know to register online!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

As for race day, please plan to arrive at the shop (TriCycle and Run – 929 S. Talbot St. – St. Michaels – MD – 21663) no later than 8:30am to pick up your bib and complete registration.  Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.  There will be a brief pre-race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am.  We will then walk as a group to the start line across the street at 9:00am.

As usual, this event is designed to be FUN!!  As such, this is a prediction race….meaning that just because you cross the finish line first, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are the race winner.  You will need to guess your finish time by the closest margin to be declared a race winner!!  The race is chip-timed to give you accurate race results.

All of our Free Fun Runs in the series welcome your 4-legged friends and strollers as well.  Since our course utilizes the St. Michaels Nature Trail, it is a safe route for all ages and abilities.

We can’t wait to see you all in a few weeks!!
