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!!

4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K Fun Run

Our FREE 5K Fun Run series continues into 2019, and we hope you will join us for our 4th Annual Shamrock Shuffle FREE 5K on Sunday, March 17th! Not only is this our 4th Annual event, this event also marks the 4 year mark for our FREE 5K Fun Run Series here at TriCycle and Run.  Our first event was held on March 14, 2015 when many of our friends and followers joined us for the Epic Pi Day Free 5K.

A FREE Fun Run means NO registration fee, but we do ask that everyone bring something to donate to our charity/beneficiary partner.  For this race, we will be collecting gift card donations for the Sts. Peter and Paul After-Prom Party.  The gift cards we collect will be used as door prizes throughout the night at the 2019 After-Prom Party event.  Help us reward the students of Talbot County that choose to remain drug- and alcohol-free on prom night.  We are a small shop serving a small community, and we want to make sure we are supporting EVERYBODY in our community that finds themselves in need.

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 brief 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.

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!!  The race is chip-timed to give you accurate race results.

All of our Free Fun Runs in the series welcome your 4-legged friends and strollers as well.  Since our course utilizes the St. Michaels Nature Trail, it is a safe route for all ages and abilities.

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