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!!

3rd Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues into 2018, and we hope you will join us for our 3rd Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K on Saturday, March 17th! A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity partner. For this race, we will be collecting gift card donations for the St. Michaels High School After-Prom Party. The gift cards we collect will be used as door prizes throughout the night at the 2018 After-Prom Party event. Help us reward the students of Talbot County that choose to remain drug- and alcohol-free on prom night.

Prom night is, statistically, one of the most dangerous nights of a student’s high school career. They may be invited to other parties that offer alcohol, often drugs are readily available and quite often students have sex on Prom night, leading to unplanned pregnancies. WE have to make sure that the SMHS After Prom Party is THE party our children choose to attend after their prom. Our mission is to keep kids safe and let’s get real…to keep them ALIVE and well.

While the party is free to students, it is an event that requires much financial support from the business community and people like you who believe in investing in the safety of students on a night that they will remember for the rest of their lives. 

Encourage everyone you know to register online!
