FLATTEST, FASTEST 13.1 IN THE MID-ATLANTIC!

The St. Michaels Running Festival has been one of the premier destination races in the Mid-Atlantic since the inaugural event in 2012. Based in one of the oldest waterfront towns on the Chesapeake, runners will be treated to gorgeous water views, small-town hospitality, great SWAG, a quick mile past charming main street shops for the half-marathon, 10K run/walk, family friendly 5k, and a rockin’ after-party right on the water. In addition to offering the flattest, fastest USATF half marathon in the region, runners get a generous package including race shirt, finisher medal or pin, complimentary refreshment, handmade finish line treats, and so much more. This year also includes a 1k Kids Fun Run for children ages 12 and younger. All children will receive a very cool finisher’s medal, race bib and finish line food/drink! Registration fees are $20. This is a great way for kids to be a part of the event and start learning about their own physical fitness. The run benefits many, many local organizations!

Prior to the race, come to our expo on Friday for insights from the experts, personalized stride analysis and great SWAG provided by our great sponsors. This event is family friendly so whether you want to set a new PR or come out and take it easy as a family or group, you’re sure to have a wonderful time at the 8th St. Michaels Running Festival!

Wooden and fiberglass classics, vintage racers, and other antique and Chesapeake Bay-related boats are returning to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for the 34rd Antique & Classic Boat Festival and the Arts at Navy Point in St. Michaels, Md.

Hosted by the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, this Father’s Day tradition brings a sense of nostalgia to the Miles River and CBMM’s docks and campus, drawing some of the area’s finest classic boats, nautical and maritime treasures, and entertainment to the waterfront festival.

This year’s festival celebrates a theme of Cruising on the Chesapeake, with classic-style cabin and express cruisers and sport fishing boats expected to attend, and a full slate of boating history seminars planned on June 18 &19. Click here to see a list of planned seminars.

The show attracts everything from the finest runabouts to yachts, and includes race boats, work boats, launches, hydroplanes, and utilities. Chris-Craft, Trumpy, Gar Wood, Donzi, and Lyman are among some of the names represented with sizes ranging from a 9-foot hydroplane to 70-foot plus cruisers. Several Jersey Speed Skiffs—a crowd favorite—will be displaying their aptly named strengths throughout the show.

“With a juried competition among entrants for best restored and preserved boats, this festival attracts the best of the best when it comes to classic and antique boats,” said ACBS-Chesapeake Bay Chapter Festival Chairman Bob Hamilton. “We’re thrilled the festival is able to return to CBMM’s beautiful campus this summer and can’t wait to see the public there.”

From Friday, June 18, through Sunday, June 21, the festival’s signature Arts at Navy Point pavilion brings juried fine artists, craftspeople, and vendors to CBMM’s waterfront campus, offering nautical and maritime-themed items for boat and home. Festival hours are 10am–5pm Friday and Saturday, with the Arts at Navy Point and limited displays continuing on Sunday from 10am–3pm. Entrance to the festival is included with CBMM’s general admission, which is good for two days and free for CBMM members.

Festival parking and a Saturday shuttle service are free, with CBMM a short walk to specialty shops, restaurants, inns, bed & breakfasts, and other attractions in St. Michaels’ historic district.
