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!

The results are in!  Mother Nature tried to put a damper on our event, but we still had a couple dozen die hard’s that showed up in their ugly gear to to brave the elements and help us give back to the community we call home.  Congratulations to our lone race winner from today, Lynn Zepp, who guessed her finish time within 10 seconds of her actual finish!

As we stated this morning, we will continue to collect donations over the next couple of days for anyone that wasn’t able to make the trek to St. Michaels because of the potential road hazards throughout the Eastern Shore area.

OFFICIAL RESULTS ARE IN THE LINK BELOW.
