Back to School FREE 5K Fun Run

The FREE 5K series continues with our Back to School race on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 9:00am!

Mark your calendars and join us for an event open to all ages and abilities.  Our course is ideal for four-legged friends as well as strollers too!

All of our races are ‘FREE’, but we do encourage participants to bring a donation to various charities and organizations.  Our goal with this event is to fill our local schools with additional school supplies for those in need for the upcoming school year.  Suggested items to donate include glue sticks, pencils, folders, notebooks, dry erase markers, loose leaf paper, and the list goes on and on!

As always, this is a prediction race – meaning you try to guess your finish time.  Anyone that guesses their finish within 10 seconds of your official race time will be declared a winner and receive a Gift Certificate for the shop.

Online race registration HERE.

We encourage everyone to complete online registration, but we will also have race day registration available inside the shop beginning at 8:00am on race day.  Bib pickup will also begin at 8am.  Pre-race meeting will begin promptly at 8:45am in our front parking lot at the store.  Race will begin at 9:00am.

Please plan to park in the St. Michaels Elementary School lot and make the short walk (2 blocks) down to the store for the race start.  There is one water station on course that participants have access to twice during the race.  We will also provide bottled water at the finish line as well.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON AUGUST 18!
