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!

Spring Fling FREE 5K Fun Run

Join us for our Spring Fling FREE Fun Run on Sunday, April 15 at 9:00am!

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues with the Spring Fling 5K on Sunday, April 15th.  A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity partner.

We were recently approached by a member of the community whose colleague was diagnosed with colon cancer a couple of years ago, and has been fighting the disease ever since.  Many of you know Sherry Smith, owner of Serendipity Salon in St. Michaels, and have supported her through this tough time.   We are happy to say that Sherry is healthy as of today, but many more are still fighting for their lives.  For this race, please plan to bring an item to donate to the Cancer Center in Easton, MD.  Your donations will be given to patients currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments.  Suggested items to donate include:  warm throw blankets, scarves, hats, magazines, crossword puzzles, personal tissue packets, and the list goes on.  Please avoid anything that is heavily perfumed (lotions, candles, etc) as it can increase nausea symptoms in patients.

So many friends and family members have been affected by cancer, and this is just one small way to show support and give back to the community at large.

Encourage everyone you know to register online!  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 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.

Online Registration can be found HERE

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!!

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