Spreading a little Holiday Cheer in 2019

We are excited to say that we have partnered with Talbot Interfaith Shelter to host one of their ‘gift trees’ this holiday season.

If you have been considering helping making someone else’s holidays a little brighter this year, stop by and check out the with lists that are still available on the tree.

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!!
