Come out and join us for our next race in our TriCycle and Run FREE 5K Series on Saturday, October 20 at 9:00am.
Planning a trip to St. Michaels for the Fall into St. Michaels weekend? Make sure you plan to kick the weekend off right by joining us and helping the After School Kids program at St. Michaels Community Center! For this race we will be collecting donations to fill the current wish list of supplies for the community center. Items needed include: basketballs, sidewalk chalk, Barbies, Barbie accessories, AA and AAA batteries, craft kits for kids, activity workbooks for grades K-5, no-sew blanket kits, healthy snacks, cases of bottled water, and more that can be found inside their latest newsletter, http://www.stmichaelscc.org/uploads/8/1/4/8/81485002/sept._2018_newsletter.pdf
This timed event will begin promptly at 9:00am. We will have a brief race meeting at 8:45am in the front parking lot of the shop, then move over the start line for the race as a group. We ask that participants plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk down to the shop for the start of the race.
On-site registration and bib pickup will begin at 8:00am, and we encourage everyone to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. The course utilizes most of the St. Michaels Nature Trail making the race ideal for participants of all ages and abilities. Strollers as well as four-legged friends are always welcome.
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! Anyone within 10 seconds of their official time will be declared a race winner!
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.
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:
-Compact First Aid Kit
-EmergenC Packets (when people start to feel sick)
-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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org!
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.
