On Saturday, May 3, the Bike Shop, in conjunction with the Cross Country Team, will hold their second annual “Du the Point” event. This event will span a 5k run around Historic St. Mary’s City, which will then be followed by a 40k bike ride to the Point Lookout light house, then back to campus.
This event was primarily planned by the Bike Shop; they will oversee the biking portion of the event. The Cross Country Team will head the running portion of the event. Students are encouraged to go but non-students are allowed to attend as well. The Bike Shop manager, Michael Woollen explained, “We would really like for this to become a primarily student attended event but we do allow non-students to participate.”
With this being the second year that the event is running, the expected number of attendees will range from 50 to 100 people. This event will also allow those who wish to attend to partake in as many functions of the event as they would want. “Students can Run, Relay, or do the entire event,” stated Woollen.
This event will cost attendees five to 20 dollars, with all the proceeds going towards St. Mary’s Christmas in April. If interested in the event, make sure the look for the Facebook group or go to BikeReg.com and search for “Du the Point.”
