2nd Annual LOVE RUN Free 5K Fun Run

Our Free Fun Run series started with a bang in January, and we hope you will help us keep things rolling into February for our 2nd Annual LOVE RUN Free 5K Fun Run on Saturday, Feb. 18th! Let’s keep the ‘love running’ after Valentine’s day. We encourage everyone to show their love and keep things FUN!

For this event, we will be collecting donations for Talbot Humane as your ‘registration fee’. Talbot Humane has been serving our community for over 80 years, and your donations will keep their efforts going strong in 2017. For a list of items, you can check out their wish list on Amazon HERE. But like every animal shelter, they can always use pet food, pet toys, paper towels, towels, pet bedding, etc.

Our FUN RUN series is designed to be just that….FUN!  We keep things fun by having the fun runs set up as prediction races. What is a prediction race? We ask you to try and guess your finish time and then, the participant that comes closest to their official time is declared a race winner! Any participant that guesses within 10 seconds is declared a winner in our book. Sound like fun? You should come give it a try!  Some races we have no winners, and some races we have had 10 winners!

Online Registration is available HERE.

On-site registration and bib pickup will begin inside the shop at 7:30am. The race will begin at 9:00am. We ask all participants to try and arrive no later than 8:30am. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (200 Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop.

We hope to see you on February 18th!

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!)
