TYR Wetsuit Demo Day

Are you in the market for new wetsuit?  Or does your suit need an upgrade?

Sunday, April 9th is your opportunity to try the 2017 TYR Wetsuit collection on….AND go for a swim in them!

That’s right, we are taking over the Dorchester Family YMCA pool along with our representative from TYR, and letting you try the suits on and test them out.  While we had hoped that the Choptank River would be warm enough for a quick dip, it doesn’t look like the water temperatures will be safe for us to demo the suits outside.  We will have use of the pool from 11:00am – 2:00pm.  Light refreshments will be offered under the TriCycle and Run tent just outside the pool in the YMCA parking lot.  We will also bring some of our closeout swimskins and triathlon apparel for you to shop!

If you decide that one of the TYR suits is for you, Laura will be taking orders and payments right there at the YMCA.  Shipping options can be discussed in detail with her at the event.  SPECIAL DISCOUNTS offered for all participants in the event!

There is also an opportunity to join some of the local athletes in the area for a quick bike ride before the demo event begins.  For further details about the group ride or the demo event, please feel free to email Laura at info@tricycleandrun.com.

We are so excited to bring this event to you, our local triathlon community!  Stay tuned for more similar events in the near future!

2nd ANNUAL Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run

lucky run 3

Where does the time go?!  This event marks our official 2 year Anniversary of our FREE 5K Fun Run Series!!  It is our sincere hope to match or beat our registration numbers from that first event (114 participants)!  So get out your green, your shamrock necklaces, your leprechaun hats and come join us for the 2nd Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run on Saturday March 18, 2017.

We began this event series back in 2015 with the Pi Day Run (3/14/15), and have successfully continued to offer a FREE race series that gives back to the community with each and every event. We will continue that with this month’s event by collecting GIFT CARDS to be donated to the St. Michaels High School After Prom Party Committee. Each year, a group of volunteers (mostly parents), work together to produce a safe, alcohol- and drug-free “party” for students immediately following Prom. Throughout the evening, students that attend are eligible to receive various door prizes for pledging to remain drug- and alcohol-free! Examples of gift cards to donate can be anything from gas cards, grocery cards, Amazon cards, ITunes cards, etc!

As usual, the race will begin at 9:00am. On-site registration and bib pick-up will begin at 7:30am inside the shop.

Our 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 is available HERE.

We hope you can join us for our 2 year CELEBRATION! Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (Seymour Ave.) then make the short walk down to the shop. Our pre-race meeting will begin at 8:45am in the front parking lot.

Stay tuned for some FUN post-race activities to be announced soon as well!
