About The St. Michaels Running Festival
The St. Michaels Running Festival Half Marathon is an incredible experience that takes place every May in the beautiful and historic town of St. Michaels, Maryland. The festival offers a wide range of activities including 5K and 10K races, a kids run, and the half marathon.
The route for the half marathon is both challenging and rewarding; it begins in downtown St. Michaels with runners looping around the harbor before heading out into some of the more rural parts of town on winding roads lined with trees and open fields filled with wildflowers in full bloom during springtime months like May. As you pass by small farms, quaint cottages, horse stables, wineries, fruit orchards and other landmarks along your path you’ll be surrounded by lush green foliage that stretches as far as your eye can see—it’s truly breathtaking!
May is typically a mild month in terms of weather; temperatures are usually between 50-70°F (10-21°C) depending on how sunny it is out that day but luckily there will be plenty of water stations available to stay hydrated throughout your journey so don’t forget to drink up! It also tends to rain quite often during this time so make sure you come prepared with proper gear just incase Mother Nature decides to throw us all a curveball that morning!
What really makes this race special though are all the wonderful people cheering you on from start to finish line; whether they are family members who have travelled from afar or friends who live nearby everyone has come together for one common goal—to show their support for those running while celebrating their own accomplishments too! There will even be music playing at certain points along your route which helps keep spirits high no matter how tired your legs might feel after miles upon miles of running!It’s definitely something unique about this event worth mentioning when trying to decide between various races going on throughout different seasons each year.
Overall if you’re looking for an enjoyable yet challenging half marathon complete with stunning views then look no further than the St Michael’s Running Festival Half Marathon; it is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience where memories will last forever no matter what time crosses over finish line at end day
