3rd Annual Tacky Prom FREE 5K Fun Run

Spring means PROM Season!  And that means it is time for our 3rd Annual ‘Tacky Prom’ Free 5K in the TriCycle and Run Fun Run Series!   That’s right, we will be running in dresses, sequins, suits, hats…but we don’t recommend high heels!

So….go dig through your parents (or your grandparents) closets, and find the tackiest of dresses or suits to wear as you join us for this FUN RUN on Sunday, May 13 2018!  Check the thrift stores, check the local consignment shops….but remember you should be able to RUN in whatever you decide to wear!

We can promise some photographic evidence for years to come after this event!

Did you know that May is Melanoma Awareness Month?  And as such, we will be collecting sunscreen to be donated to the local watermen community immediately following the event.  Those that serve to fill our tables with nature’s bounty day in and day out are exposed to the sun on a daily basis.  Many of those that head out on the Chesapeake Bay and it’s tributaries to make their livelihood have already suffered the sun’s effects and have been treated for melanoma.  Many are still in danger of the sun’s brutal attack.  Join us in helping give back to the community and grab a can or a bottle to donate!

You probably know the drill by now, but our Fun Run races are prediction races!  Meaning that you don’t have to be the first person to cross the finish line in order to win the race, you just need to guess your finish time by the closest margin in order to be declared an official winner!  Anyone that guesses their time within 10 seconds will be a race WINNER!

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

On-site registration and bib pick-up will begin here at the shop at 8:00am.  The race will begin promptly at 9:00am.  Participants are encouraged to arrive no later than 8:30am.  We also ask that everyone plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School, located on Seymour Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the shop.

We will have a brief race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am to review the course details and any special offers for participants immediately following the race.

Come join us for a great event, and remember that our course is kid-, pet-, and stroller-friendly!  All ages and abilities are welcome!!

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!!
