Hot Chocolate FREE 5K Fun Run

hot-chocolate-run

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!

 

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!
