Back to School FREE 5k Fun Run

bts 5k 2

Can you believe that it is almost time to head back to school?!  No?  Neither can we, but we just haven’t figured out how to slow down time just yet.  With that in mind, it is time for our next FREE 5k in the monthly series, so we are both happy (and let’s face it, a little sad) to announce the BACK TO SCHOOL 5k on Saturday August 13 will benefit the Bay Hundred schools.  As always these events are ‘free’ to participants in that we don’t ask for a registration fee.  However we do ask for a donation to a worthy cause, and this month we are asking you to bring classroom supplies for us to distribute to the local schools.

Our 5k series utilizes the St. Michaels Nature Trail for a scenic 3.1 mile run/jog/walk through our beautiful town.  If you plan to join us for the event, please remember to park at the elementary school then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  On-site registration will begin at 7:30am and the race will begin promptly at 9:00am.

We encourage you to register early HERE.

Want to stick around for a little grub or maybe a frothy brew in town?  Well, we partner with local restaurants and our local microbrewery to offer you participant discounts!!  So come run with us, then stay awhile and visit the town we love and call home!

Oh yeah, one more little note…our races are ‘prediction races’ so our winners are determined by how closely you can guess your finish time!  Don’t cross the line first?  No problem!  Just guess your time within 10 seconds and YOU will be a WINNER!

The third installment of the TriCycle and Run FREE 5k Series will take place over Memorial Day Weekend, on Saturday, May 23rd. Doors will open for bib pickup at 7:30 am and the race will start at 9 am. Please try to be on site by 8:30 am!!

The run will take you back in to the Marea Terrace development and then along the beautiful Town of St Michaels Rails to Trails. Enjoy a water stop at the half way point and amenities at the turn around at the far end of the trail.

The best part is, the fastest person doesn’t always win! That’s right!! We are continuing our history of letting you GUESS WHAT YOUR FINISH TIME WILL BE!! Those within 10 seconds of their time (plus or minus) will be awarded a special prize. EVERYONE who participates will be offered 10% off at our store, and we invite everyone to stick around and enjoy all of the festivities that will be taking place in the lovely town of St Michaels.

As always, registration is FREE. Our charity partner this month is your local watermen. That’s right! Those folks out there earning their living by harvesting the foods we love to eat. They spend all day in the sun and many are afflicted by Melanoma. We want to give back to them by asking for donations of sunscreen for them. Spray on, lotion, sticks, whatever you can find. The higher the SPF the better! We’ll make sure that they are dispersed out to our local watermen here in St Michaels and on Tilghman Island!

So come one, come all!! The race is THIS Saturday, May 23rd, at 9am. Your entry is a container of sunscreen and let’s see if you can guess your time within 10 seconds! We are encouraging everyone to pre-register using the link http://goo.gl/forms/b6FhLtMC0s!

 

Tell your friends and come on out for a GREAT CAUSE!!!
