LOVE RUN FREE 5K Fun Run Results

Our 2nd Fun Run in the 2017 Series is in the books!  We had an AMAZING turnout on this unseasonably warm day for February, so please accept our sincerest thanks for your continued support.  Thanks to all of you, we will help stock the shelves at Talbot Humane!  Take a look at your haul!


We would like to take a minute and extend our apologies for the short course that everyone ran today.  We believe there may have been an arrow missing on the course to direct everyone down the 2nd cul de sac in Marea Terrace, which resulted in the course that most everyone completed to be around 2.8 miles.  We adjusted the distance in the timing system to reflect your pace for the actual course distance.  We will make sure to set up a cone for the next race so that you don’t miss the turn and get the complete 5K course!  Below is the link to the official results.  Out of the 78 participants today, we had 2 race ‘WINNERS’ and they are:  Todd Bellamy and Eric Griffioen!  Be sure to check in with Laura the next time you are at the shop for your prize!


Be sure to mark your calendars for our 2nd Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K event on Saturday, March 18th.  This event will benefit the SMHS After Prom Party, and we are asking that everyone bring a giftcard to donate to their door prizes.  Grocery cards, gas cards, restaurant cards, etc!  The After Prom Party is a safe, drug- and alcohol-free place for local teens to go immediately following the Prom, where there are activities, chaperones, music and PRIZES for them to win throughout the night!

Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run Results

Our 2017 Fun Run series started with a BANG today at the Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run!  Once again, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our local running community.  We collected various cold weather items (both new and lightly used) to be distributed to our local schools here in the Bay Hundred region.  We received everything from hats, scarves, and gloves to sweaters and winter coats.  The picture below is everything we collected from our 60+ participants today!  (Plus, we even had some donations come in from community members that did not participate, but wanted to help!)


We had 4 official winners in our ‘prediction’ race today, including one who was just 11 years old!  Congratulations to Collin Phelps, Thomas Hutchinson, Ashley Chroniger and Debbie Herr Cornwell, who all guessed their finish time within 10 seconds of their recorded time!  Come by to see Laura at the shop for your official prize.

OFFICIAL Results are below:


We would like to thank our community partners that supports our participants with generous discounts following each event.  Special shout out to Eastern Shore Brewing who offers $1 off pints and flights and Carpenter Street Saloon, who offers 10% food purchases following each event.

Our next event is set for Saturday, February 18th and it will be our 2nd Annual Love Run to benefit the Talbot Humane Society.  Stay tuned for further details in the next week!
