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!

Come help us kickoff the start of our 2017 Fun Run Series with our Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run on Sunday, January 15!

We will provide the hot chocolate for you to enjoy before or after the event.  All we ask of you is that you bring various cold weather apparel items (hats, coats, gloves, etc.) to donate to kids in need.  We will give your donations to the local schools to be distributed on a need basis.  Your donation will act as your ‘registration fee’ for the event!  It’s your chance to start the new year off on a positive note by giving back to the community.

If you have never participated in one of our Fun Runs, here are the details.  These are prediction races!  Meaning that our winners are declared as those who are able to guess their finish time by the closest margin.  Anyone that guesses their time within 10 seconds will be declared a race winner.

Our race course utilizes the beautiful, paved St. Michaels Nature Trail.  It is a safe and scenic route ideal for participants of all ages and abilities!  Bring your family, bring your friends, or bring your four-legged friends, but come and join us on January 15th.

The race will begin at 9:00am.  On-site registration and bib pickup will begin at 7:30 inside the shop.  We encourage everyone to plan to arrive by 8:30am as we will conduct a brief race meeting at 8:45am.  We will then walk over to the start line as a group.  Please plan to park at the St. Michaels Elementary School parking lot (located on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down the shop.  The hot chocolate will be waiting for you!

Online registration is open and available HERE.

We hope to see you!  Let’s celebrate the New Year together!
