MRE .05K Run Announced

Republic’s .05K Run Scheduled For May 8

Runners, get your shoes ready, the Annual Maritime Republic of Eastport has announced the date for their .05K Bridge Run. This year, it will take place on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at the usual time (Crack O’ Noon).

In the spring the MRE hosts internationally acclaimed Extreme Sports Event, the .05K run across Spa Creek (The Gulf of Eastport) Bridge.

Runners, joggers, walkers, strollers, humans and dogs of all ages, are invited to participate in MRE’s “grueling” bridge run. Yes, it’s .05K – point oh-five-K. Past first place champions have completed the run in about 32 seconds, so MRE thoughtfully includes a water stop at mid-span and has held warm-up sessions prior to the race.

For a modest entry fee, participants receive a priceless special edition event t-shirts, a runner’s number to be pinned on their garments, a map of the race course, and a swag bag filled with goodies courtesy of local merchants.

The start is on the Annapolis side, next to the Annapolis Yacht Club, whose ordinance officer has signaled the start with a bang! – the shot of the race cannon. Although participants are issued a map of the race course, they have also been able to follow a special pace car in order to avoid getting lost.

More details to come soon. For now, visit the MRE website!
