Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run


Come help us kickoff the start of our 2017 Fun Run Series with our Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run on Sunday, January 15!

We will provide the hot chocolate for you to enjoy before or after the event.  All we ask of you is that you bring various cold weather apparel items (hats, coats, gloves, etc.) to donate to kids in need.  We will give your donations to the local schools to be distributed on a need basis.  Your donation will act as your ‘registration fee’ for the event!  It’s your chance to start the new year off on a positive note by giving back to the community.

If you have never participated in one of our Fun Runs, here are the details.  These are prediction races!  Meaning that our winners are declared as those who are able to guess their finish time by the closest margin.  Anyone that guesses their time within 10 seconds will be declared a race winner.

Our race course utilizes the beautiful, paved St. Michaels Nature Trail.  It is a safe and scenic route ideal for participants of all ages and abilities!  Bring your family, bring your friends, or bring your four-legged friends, but come and join us on January 15th.

The race will begin at 9:00am.  On-site registration and bib pickup will begin at 7:30 inside the shop.  We encourage everyone to plan to arrive by 8:30am as we will conduct a brief race meeting at 8:45am.  We will then walk over to the start line as a group.  Please plan to park at the St. Michaels Elementary School parking lot (located on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down the shop.  The hot chocolate will be waiting for you!

Online registration is open and available HERE.

We hope to see you!  Let’s celebrate the New Year together!


9/11/01 Memorial 5K FREE Fun Run


Our September FREE 5K Fun Run will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2011.   A day that will live in infamy, and it is now 15 years since the attack on our nation.  We hope you will join us in your best red, white and blue PATRIOTIC gear and come out for what is sure to be a great event.

As always, these events are free to participants.  What we do ask, is that you bring a donation to a local charity as your ‘participation fee’.  This month we will be collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to our local food pantries.

On-site registration will begin at the shop at 7:30am.  We encourage everyone to register ahead of time through this LINK.   Please try and get to the shop by 8:30am to pick up your bib and sign the liability waiver.   Also, please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  The race will begin at 9:00am and utilize most of the St. Michaels Nature Trail.

Not the fastest runner?  No problem!  Our races are prediction races to keep them FUN!!  All you have to do to be declared a winner is guess your finish time by the closest margin.  Anyone within 10 seconds of their actual time will declared a winner!

We hope to see you on Sunday!
