Back to School FREE 5K Fun Run

The FREE 5K series continues with our Back to School race on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at 9:00am!

Mark your calendars and join us for an event open to all ages and abilities.  Our course is ideal for four-legged friends as well as strollers too!

All of our races are ‘FREE’, but we do encourage participants to bring a donation to various charities and organizations.  Our goal with this event is to fill our local schools with additional school supplies for those in need for the upcoming school year.  Suggested items to donate include glue sticks, pencils, folders, notebooks, dry erase markers, loose leaf paper, and the list goes on and on!

As always, this is a prediction race – meaning you try to guess your finish time.  Anyone that guesses their finish within 10 seconds of your official race time will be declared a winner and receive a Gift Certificate for the shop.

Online race registration HERE.

We encourage everyone to complete online registration, but we will also have race day registration available inside the shop beginning at 8:00am on race day.  Bib pickup will also begin at 8am.  Pre-race meeting will begin promptly at 8:45am in our front parking lot at the store.  Race will begin at 9:00am.

Please plan to park in the St. Michaels Elementary School lot and make the short walk (2 blocks) down to the store for the race start.  There is one water station on course that participants have access to twice during the race.  We will also provide bottled water at the finish line as well.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON AUGUST 18!

Spring Fling FREE 5K Fun Run

Join us for our Spring Fling FREE Fun Run on Sunday, April 15 at 9:00am!

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues with the Spring Fling 5K on Sunday, April 15th.  A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity partner.

We were recently approached by a member of the community whose colleague was diagnosed with colon cancer a couple of years ago, and has been fighting the disease ever since.  Many of you know Sherry Smith, owner of Serendipity Salon in St. Michaels, and have supported her through this tough time.   We are happy to say that Sherry is healthy as of today, but many more are still fighting for their lives.  For this race, please plan to bring an item to donate to the Cancer Center in Easton, MD.  Your donations will be given to patients currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments.  Suggested items to donate include:  warm throw blankets, scarves, hats, magazines, crossword puzzles, personal tissue packets, and the list goes on.  Please avoid anything that is heavily perfumed (lotions, candles, etc) as it can increase nausea symptoms in patients.

So many friends and family members have been affected by cancer, and this is just one small way to show support and give back to the community at large.

Encourage everyone you know to register online!  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 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.

Online Registration can be found HERE

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!!

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