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!

Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run – March 12, 2016

lucky run 3

Come out an join us as we celebrate the ONE YEAR Anniversary of our Fun Run Series on Saturday March 12, 2016!  We will be having the Shamrock Shuffle 5K in celebration of St. Paddy’s Day,so come out in your best GREEN running GEAR with your family, friends or loved ones (even the furry kind as animals are allowed on the trail), for a safe 5k (3.1 mile) run on the St Michaels Nature Trail with a short jaunt through the Marea Terrace development.

This month, we are asking for donations the annual Easter dinner hosted by the St. Michaels Community Center where they give out bags of non-perishable items to those in need in our community.  They are in need of items such as:  canned hams, tuna, soups, beef stew, beef-a-roni, Mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, deodorant, toilet paper, etc. That’s it!! No money! No entry fee! Just a kind donation to our local community members in need.

As always, this is a guesstimated time event so make sure to challenge yourself with a guess on your finish time. You don’t have to be the first person across the line to finish, just be within 10 seconds of your estimated time and YOU WIN!!

We will have on site registration and packet pickup starting at 7:30am on Saturday, March 12th and we ask that all runners be on site by 8:30am. Runners should park at the St Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Avenue) and walk down to the shop (929 S. Talbot Street) for our start.

Be sure and bring a couple of dollars in the morning, as the Bay Hundred Tides Softball team will be here with a bake sale to raise funds for their travel team.   Sounds like the perfect pre-race fuel if you ask us!!

After the race, Eastern Shore Brewing will be opening at 10am just for participants!  $1 off drafts to everyone sporting their St. Paddy’s Day garb!
