4th Annual Tacky Prom FREE 5K Fun Run

Spring means PROM Season!  And that means it is time for our 4th Annual ‘Tacky Prom’ Free 5K in our FREE 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, April 14th!  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!

We are keeping the giving going for our local After-Prom Party events and this month’s recipient of your Gift Card donations is St. Michaels High School After-Prom Party.  Each year, students that pledge to remain drug- and alcohol-free on prom night attend the Annual After Prom Party where they play games and are eligible to win various door prizes throughout the event.  Your gift card donations will go directly to the prize pot for these responsible students!  All types of gift cards are encouraged:  gas cards, grocery cards, Amazon cards, and the list goes on!  Any denomination is welcome.  Donations are NOT required to participate, but they are encouraged.  This is one small way that we help give back to the community that supports us.

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!

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!!

Planning a trip to St. Michaels for the Fall into St. Michaels weekend?  Make sure you plan to kick the weekend off right by joining us and helping the After School Kids program at St. Michaels Community Center!  For this race we will be collecting donations to fill the current wish list of supplies for the community center.  Items needed include:  basketballs, sidewalk chalk, Barbies, Barbie accessories, AA and AAA batteries, craft kits for kids, activity workbooks for grades K-5, no-sew blanket kits, healthy snacks, cases of bottled water, and more that can be found inside their latest newsletter, http://www.stmichaelscc.org/uploads/8/1/4/8/81485002/sept._2018_newsletter.pdf

This timed event will begin promptly at 9:00am.  We will have a brief race meeting at 8:45am in the front parking lot of the shop, then move over the start line for the race as a group.  We ask that participants plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk down to the shop for the start of the race.

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin at 8:00am, and we encourage everyone to try and arrive no later than 8:30am.  The course utilizes most of the St. Michaels Nature Trail making the race ideal for participants of all ages and abilities.  Strollers as well as four-legged friends are always welcome.

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! Anyone within 10 seconds of their official time will be declared a race winner!

We can’t wait to see you all in a couple weeks!
