RESULTS — Running Marvel 5k – In Memoriam of Don Marvel – June 4, 2016

Thank you all who came out today!!! You can find the list of results at




The Running Marvel 5k race was created as a memorial celebration of the life of Don Marvel, and to honor his memory by raising funds in support of cancer research at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

Donald E Marvel was a lifelong resident of Talbot County, Borin in Easton in 1942, he graduated from Easton High School in 1960, and was revered as a coach and teacher at this Alma Mater for 32 years. He died of kidney cancer in 2015, leaving behind a wife, Carol, two adult children (Laurie and Chris) and seven grandchildren, all of which are Easton High School graduates.

Don was widely known as a world-class ultra-marathon runner in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He specialized in running 100 mile races and 24 hour races, where he would compete with the best runners in the world. He was also well respeceted in the high school wrestling community for his great coaching ability. Those who knew him never knew a greater competitor.

Don loved to teach, coach, and run, and he is missed by all who were touched by his passion and his life.

love run 2


**This event was postponed due to the frigid temperatures we had on Valentine’s Day.  The new date is February 28th!  Online registration is open.**

Come out an join us in a kickoff to your Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14th, for our LOVE Run. Come out in your best RED running clothes with your family, friends or loved ones (even the furry kind as animals are allowed on the trail), for a safe 5k (3.1 mile) run on the St Michaels Nature Trail with a short jaunt through the Marea Terrace development.

This month, we are asking for donations of NEW underwear, socks, bras, undershirts and gloves for our local schools. The items will be split up between the local schools and distributed to kids in need of these items. These will be for kids of all ages (elementary to high school) so keep that in mind when picking something up. That’s it!! No money! No entry fee! Just a kind donation to our local kids for items that many do without.

As always, this is a guesstimated time event so make sure to challenge yourself with a guess on your finish time. You don’t have to be the first person across the line to finish, just be within 10 seconds of your estimated time and YOU WIN!!

We will have on site registration and packet pickup starting at 7:30am on Sunday, February 28th and we ask that all runners be on site by 8:30am. Runners should park at the St Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Avenue) and walk down to the shop (929 S. Talbot Street) for our start.

You can register TODAY by checking out and you can refer your friends to our website at for them to register too.

We look forward to seeing all of our friends out on course on Sunday, February 28th. Show your holiday spirit and dress in your RED running clothes. Who knows… we may even have a cupid show up as well 🙂
