4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues into 2019, and we hope you will join us for our 4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K on Sunday, March 17th! Not only is this our 4th Annual event, this event also marks the 4 year mark for our FREE 5K Fun Run Series here at TriCycle and Run.  Our first event was held on March 14, 2015 when many of our friends and followers joined us for the Epic Pi Day Free 5K.

A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity/beneficiary partner.  For this race, we will be collecting gift card donations for the Sts. Peter and Paul After-Prom Party.  The gift cards we collect will be used as door prizes throughout the night at the 2019 After-Prom Party event.  Help us reward the students of Talbot County that choose to remain drug- and alcohol-free on prom night.  We are a small shop serving a small community, and we want to make sure we are supporting EVERYBODY in our community that finds themselves in need.

Encourage everyone you know to register online!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

As for race day, please plan to arrive at the shop (TriCycle and Run – 929 S. Talbot St. – St. Michaels – MD – 21663) no later than 8:30am to pick up your bib and complete registration.  Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.  There will be a brief pre-race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am.  We will then walk as a group to the start line across the street at 9:00am.

As usual, this event is designed to be FUN!!  As such, this is a prediction race….meaning that just because you cross the finish line first, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are the race winner.  You will need to guess your finish time by the closest margin to be declared a race winner!!  The race is chip-timed to give you accurate race results.

All of our Free Fun Runs in the series welcome your 4-legged friends and strollers as well.  Since our course utilizes the St. Michaels Nature Trail, it is a safe route for all ages and abilities.

We can’t wait to see you all in a few weeks!!

2nd Annual Talbot Goes Purple FREE 5K Fun Run

We hope you will plan to join us for our September installment in our FREE 5K Fun Run series as we join the effort to raise awareness of substance abuse in Talbot County.  For this event, taking place on Sunday September 9, we are partnering with the Talbot Goes Purple initiative.

Talbot Goes Purple is a substance abuse awareness program that will engage our community and youth to stand against substance abuse.

The project is based upon THP Project Purple, an initiative of The Herren Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation established by former NBA basketball player, Chris Herren, that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction. 

Talbot Goes Purple is an initiative from Talbot County Sheriff’s Office and Tidewater Rotary, in partnership with Talbot County Public Schools and Mid-Shore Community Foundation. 

For more information about the Talbot Goes Purple initiative and for other ways to contribute to the effort, please visit https://www.talbotgoespurple.org/

In keeping with our FREE events, we do not ask for monetary donations, but rather encourage all participants to bring an item to donate to help create ‘blessing bags’ that will be provided to those individuals currently struggling with substance abuse in our community.  Items to consider include:

-Chapstick
-Facial Wipes
-Moisturizer
-Comb
-Toothbrush
-Toothpaste
-Q-Tips
-Multipurpose Wipes
-Compact First Aid Kit
-EmergenC Packets (when people start to feel sick)
-Hand Warmers
-Warm Socks
-Prepaid Phone Cards

As always, the race will begin at 9:00am, with on-site registration and bib pickup available beginning at 8:00am here at the shop.  We will have a brief race meeting at 8:45am in our front parking lot.  And remember, we aim to have FUN with these events.  Each race is a prediction race!  You try and guess your finish time, and anyone who guesses their actual finish time within 10 seconds will be declared a WINNER and receive a gift certificate to the shop.

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to send us an email info@tricycleandrun.com!

If you want to come out and show your support, but don’t want to run or walk, please remember that we are always in need of volunteers to lend a hand.

See you on September 9th!
