5th Annual Ugly Sweater FREE 5K – Saturday, December 21st

HERE WE GO!

Everyone’s FAVORITE Fun Run of the year is set for Saturday, December 21, 2019!  Mark your calendars and start to look for your ugliest of ugly sweaters.

With the toy drive from this annual event, we are able to brighten the holidays for many of our area youth, so we will continue the tradition with this year’s event.  Since registration for this event is FREE, we kindly ask that you bring an unwrapped toy to donate as your participation ‘fee’.  Let’s see how full the we can make our tree this year!!  All the toys donated to go directly to the St. Michaels Community Center, ‘the heart of the community’.

Who doesn’t love a great UGLY SWEATER?  Even if you don’t currently have one hiding in the depths of your closet, we can bet you know where to find one, or can make one!   Tell your friends, bring your family, but make sure you join us for this EPIC event!

To make this event even more fun, we will award prizes for various categories for your ‘Ugly Sweaters’!

Categories are as follows:

Best (UGLIEST) Traditional
Best (UGLIEST) Homemade
Best (UGLIEST) Non-traditional
Best (UGLIEST) Couple/Family/Group
(Stay tuned for official rules to be announced closer to the race date)

Our FREE 5K series is designed to be FUN!  With that in mind, all of the races are prediction races.  That means you try to GUESS your finish time before you start.  Those that come the closest to their actual time (within 10 seconds) will be declared the WINNERS!!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

Since parking is limited at the store, please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, then make the short, 2-block walk to the shop on race morning.  On-site registration and bib pick-up will begin at 7:30am. There will be a  brief pre-race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am, then all participants will cross the street together to the race start line.  The race will begin at 9:00am.  There will be one water station set up on the course, which is passed twice.  All ages and abilities are welcome to participate in this event.  Runners, walkers, joggers, walk/jog, child strollers and 4-legged friends….all are welcome!

Remember that if you don’t want to walk or run, then volunteers are always needed to lend a hand!!

Stay tuned about an post-race celebration!

We hope to see you on December 21st dressed in your ugliest gear!!

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!!
