St. Michaels ChocolateFest 5K

Looking for something DELICIOUS to do in March? Come join us for the ChocolateFest celebration, presented by the St Michaels Business Association, on Saturday, March 7th, 2020 (https://www.stmichaelsmd.org/chocolatefest for more information).

Kick off your morning with a beautiful 5k (3.1 mile) run/walk and burn off those calories (so you can fill them back up with delicious CHOCOLATE!!!!) before heading in to town for all the festivities. Our course will take you on the St Michaels Nature Trail, with a few minor road crossings. Participants will check in at TriCycle and Run, located at 929 S. Talbot Street, before heading over to the start area.

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

Packet pickup and registration begin at 8am, with the run/walk starting promptly at 9am.

Participants should park at the St Michaels Elementary School parking lot (100 Seymour Avenue, St Michaels, MD).

Awards will be given out for Overall Winners, as well as age groups.

 

LOVE Run Free 5K Fun Run set for February 15

Join us on Saturday, February 15 for their LOVE Run Free 5K Fun Run to benefit Talbot Humane.  Help them show a little love to the animals of Talbot County by pledging to bring a pet item as your ‘registration fee’ for this free, and always fun event!

Talbot Humane has been serving our community for over 80 years, and your donations will keep their efforts going strong in 2020. For a list of items, you can check out their wish list on Amazon (available through their website, www.talbothumane.org). But like every animal shelter, they can always use pet food, pet toys, paper towels, towels, pet bedding, etc.

The FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN!  We keep things fun by having the fun runs set up as prediction races. What is a prediction race? We ask you to try and guess your finish time and then, the participant that comes closest to their official time is declared a race winner! Any participant that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a winner in our book. Sound like fun? You should come give it a try!  Some races we have no winners, and some races we have had 10 winners!

Online Registration HERE

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 8:00am. The race will begin at 9:00am. We ask all participants to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.

We hope to see you on February 15th!
