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!

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!!

Resolution Run FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run Series continues in 2019 as we kick things off with the Resolution Run Free 5K on Saturday, January 12.

Join us for the first race of 2019 in the TriCycle and Run FREE 5K Fun Run series on Saturday, January 12th for the Resolution Run FREE 5K Fun Run.  With the cold weather upon us, we will be collecting cold weather gear and apparel to donate to a local clothing drive.  Since the race is free, we just ask you to bring a donation to participate.  Items to bring this month include hats, gloves, scarves, coats, socks, mittens, and any other items to keep our neighbors in need warm for the next couple of months.

Our FREE races are timed races.  The ‘FUN’ catch is that they are prediction races.  That means you can only ‘win’ if you guess your finish time by the closest margin!  (anyone that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a race ‘winner’).  Our course utilizes the beautiful St. Michaels Nature Trail, making it safe for participants of all ages and ability levels.

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

The race starts promptly at 9:00am.  On-site registration and bib pickup will begin at 8:00am inside the shop (929 S. Talbot St. ~ St. Michaels, MD).  Participants are encouraged to arrive by 8:30am.  A brief race meeting will be held in the front parking lot of the shop at 8:45am, then all participants will proceed to the start line together just before 9:00am.  Participants should plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Avenue), then make the short 2-block walk down to the shop.

If you have family that is planning to make the trip to the race with you, remember that we can always use a few volunteers to lend a hand on race day!

We hope to see you on January 12th!
