9/11/01 Memorial 5K FREE Fun Run

memorial-5k

Our September FREE 5K Fun Run will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2011.   A day that will live in infamy, and it is now 15 years since the attack on our nation.  We hope you will join us in your best red, white and blue PATRIOTIC gear and come out for what is sure to be a great event.

As always, these events are free to participants.  What we do ask, is that you bring a donation to a local charity as your ‘participation fee’.  This month we will be collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to our local food pantries.

On-site registration will begin at the shop at 7:30am.  We encourage everyone to register ahead of time through this LINK.   Please try and get to the shop by 8:30am to pick up your bib and sign the liability waiver.   Also, please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk down to the shop for the race start.  The race will begin at 9:00am and utilize most of the St. Michaels Nature Trail.

Not the fastest runner?  No problem!  Our races are prediction races to keep them FUN!!  All you have to do to be declared a winner is guess your finish time by the closest margin.  Anyone within 10 seconds of their actual time will declared a winner!

We hope to see you on Sunday!

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!
