Turkey Trot FREE 5K Fun Run RESULTS

Thank you to the 80 runners/walkers that came out for our November installment in the TriCycle and Run FREE 5K Fun Run Series!

We’d like to thank you for your generous food donations that will go directly to the St. Michaels Community Center Food Bank to refill their shelves for the holidays!


CONGRATULATIONS to everyone that finished today, and big congrats to our 2 official WINNERS of the race, Scott Ackerson and Elizabeth Griffin, who both ‘guessed’ their finish time within 10 seconds of their official time.   Laura will have a special prize for you the next time you stop in the shop!



Did you have a great time?  Then be sure to join us on Saturday, December 17th for our 2nd Annual Ugly Sweater FREE 5K Fun Run!


2nd Annual UGLY SWEATER 5K Fun Run

It’s back!!!


All the permits have been submitted, so we are happy to announce that our 2nd Annual UGLY SWEATER 5K Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, December 17th!


With our toy drive from this event last year, we were 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!!

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!  This event garnered our largest turnout for any of our 5K’s in the series last year, so the question is….can we top it this year?  Tell your friends, bring your family, but make sure you join us for this EPIC event!  PRIZES will be awarded to the Ugliest Sweater in addition to our race winners!

Our 5K series is designed to be FUN!  With that in mind, all of our races are prediction races.  That means we ask you 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!!

Since parking is limited here at the store, we ask that you 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.  We will have a brief pre-race meeting in our front parking lot at 8:45am, then cross the street together to the race start line.  The race will begin at 9:00am.  We will have 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 we could always use an extra hand or two as a race volunteer!!

We hope to see you on December 17th dressed in your ugliest gear!!

Please note:  We are awaiting approval from the town, so stay tuned for any possible changes in the coming weeks.
