3rd Annual Ugly Sweater FREE 5K Fun Run

IT’S BACK!!

All the permits have been submitted, so we are happy to announce that our 3nd Annual UGLY SWEATER 5K Fun Run is scheduled for Sunday, December 10th!

With our toy drive from this event last year and the year before, 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!   Tell your friends, bring your family, but make sure you join us for this EPIC event!

To make this event even more fun, we will award prizes for various categories for your ‘Ugly Sweaters’ this year!

Categories are as follows:

  1. Best (UGLIEST) Traditional
  2. Best (UGLIEST) Homemade
  3. Best (UGLIEST) Non-traditional
  4. Best (UGLIEST) Couple/Family/Group

(Stay tuned for official rules to be announced closer to the race date)

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!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

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!!

Don’t forget about the after-party celebration hosted by Eastern Shore Brewing!  More details to come soon!

We hope to see you on December 10th dressed in your ugliest gear!!

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

Cassidy Cares FREE 5K Fun Run – October 28, 2017

Join us on Saturday, October 28 to celebrate and honor the life of Cassidy Stinton and give back to the organization that she loved so dearly.

A precious life was taken way too soon. Cassidy Stinton was only 19 when she lost her life in a tragic accident in 2015. She was a beautiful, energetic young woman who could brighten anyone’s day. She loved being with friends and family. Cassidy was an exceptional athlete and a caring person. We want to help carry on her memory by donating toys to the Kinder Garden, an early learning childcare facility, in Easton, MD.

And what’s an October 5k without costumes? Come celebrate Cassidy’s memory by dressing up in your favorite costume!! Before we run, we will have a COSTUME CONTEST with awards for the best overall costume!

So come on out for our Free 5k series and bring an unwrapped toy, that we can pass along to our friends at The Kinder Garden (http://www.kindergardensite.com/). This will be one of our PREDICTED 5ks (as usual) so come on out, guess your finish time, and if you are within 10 seconds, you can win ANOTHER prize!!!!

ONLINE REGISTRATION AVAILABLE HERE

Stay tuned for special promotions that we will be doing to remember Cassidy, as we build this race in her memory!

As usual, on-site registration and bib pick up will begin at 7:30am at the shop. The race will begin at 9am. Please remember to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk to the shop for the race start. We hope to see you on the 28th!
