JUST ANNOUNCED! Pocomoke Triathlon

TCR Event Management is excited to announce the 2018 Pocomoke Triathlon on June 23, 2018!

This race, formerly known as the Tri The Beach race of the Lower Shore Family YMCA, has been reworked and re-branded by TCR Event Management, out of St Michaels, MD. This sprint distance event will take place at the Lower Shore Family YMCA’s grounds, located at 1900 Worcester Hwy, Pocomoke City, MD, on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018.

The race will entail a Sprint Triathlon (.5 mile swim, 14 mile bike, 3.1 mile run), as well as a kids triathlon (100 yard swim, 2 mile bike, 1 mile run). The swim will be in a freshwater pond, located behind the YMCA. After you are complete, you will travel out on to the roadways of Worcester County, with law enforcement assisting you at the intersections, to ensure a smooth and safe race. Complete the bike and then it’s on to our out-and-back 5k course, all before finishing up at the Lower Shore Family YMCA for a post-celebration meal and awards!!

Come out and compete against other local triathletes, or use the race as your first taste of triathlon. Many participants like our pond swim to build up their confidence and the roadways are flat flat FLAT!!!

Packet pickup will begin at 6:30am on Race Day and the Sprint Race begins at 8am. Bring the kids and the whole family and spend the rest of the day in Ocean City, Maryland (about 35 miles away) or explore the charming town of Pocomoke City!

Registration for this event is open and available HERE!

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:
Paper
Folders
Anti-bacterial Wipes
Pens/Pencils
Kleenex

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.

EARLY ONLINE REGISTRATION AVAILABLE HERE

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!!
