Back to School FREE 5k Fun Run

bts 5k 2

Can you believe that it is almost time to head back to school?!  No?  Neither can we, but we just haven’t figured out how to slow down time just yet.  With that in mind, it is time for our next FREE 5k in the monthly series, so we are both happy (and let’s face it, a little sad) to announce the BACK TO SCHOOL 5k on Saturday August 13 will benefit the Bay Hundred schools.  As always these events are ‘free’ to participants in that we don’t ask for a registration fee.  However we do ask for a donation to a worthy cause, and this month we are asking you to bring classroom supplies for us to distribute to the local schools.

Our 5k series utilizes the St. Michaels Nature Trail for a scenic 3.1 mile run/jog/walk through our beautiful town.  If you plan to join us for the event, please remember to park at the elementary school then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  On-site registration will begin at 7:30am and the race will begin promptly at 9:00am.

We encourage you to register early HERE.

Want to stick around for a little grub or maybe a frothy brew in town?  Well, we partner with local restaurants and our local microbrewery to offer you participant discounts!!  So come run with us, then stay awhile and visit the town we love and call home!

Oh yeah, one more little note…our races are ‘prediction races’ so our winners are determined by how closely you can guess your finish time!  Don’t cross the line first?  No problem!  Just guess your time within 10 seconds and YOU will be a WINNER!

The UGLY SWEATER FREE 5k is coming!!!

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!!! If you would like to still participate, please come by our shop on Saturday morning between 7:30 and 8:30 am to sign up on site. Please park at the St Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Avenue) and walk down to the shop.

Looking forward to seeing everyone out there!!

Want a way to stay in shape AND wear that horrible holiday sweater in your closet? Well look no further!! The Ugly Sweater FREE 5k, hosted by TriCycle and Run (929 S. Talbot Street, St Michaels, MD) is your place to be.

On Saturday, December 19th at 9am, toe the start line with your UGLIEST holiday sweater on and run on the St Michaels Walking Trail with some of your friends. The 3.1 mile course will take you along the walking trail and back in to the Marea Terrace development. With port-o-johns and water stops on the course, this run is proven to be flat, fast and well supported.

The run, in our own, unique spin, is an estimated finish run. That means that you get to guess your estimated finish time and, if you are within 10 seconds of that time, YOU ARE THE WINNER!! So it doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are… it matters how well you know your pace.

Entry for this race is FREE but we do ask for a small donation of an unwrapped toy that we can give to the St Michaels Community Center for distribution to our local youth.

BUT WAIT!!! As an added incentive, we have partnered with Eastern Shore Brewing to bring the party to the race. The ESB (www.easternshorebrewing.com) located at 605 S. Talbot Street, will be opening at 10am for our runners and spectators and will be offering $1 off all draft beers. It may seem early for a pint but you’ve earned it this holiday season, haven’t you? 😉

Come one. Come all. Be you a walker, a jogger, a sprinter. Bring your strollers and your well-behaved canine companions. Come out and enjoy the trail and know that your donation will help to brighten a young boy or girl’s holiday season.
