This morning was the 3rd Annual Storm Warriors 5k 2016 at the Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum here in Ocean City MD. Over 140 runners and walkers showed up, plus over a 100 more fans to cheer the runners on.
It was a beautiful day for a race, in the 50’s, little wind and nothing but blue skies. The morning started early for the folks of OC TriRunning Sports who were on the boards before 7:00 am to set up and get everything ready for the race. Also, on the scene early were the folks from the Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum getting the tables set up for the bananas, granola bars, water and the official Storm Warriors 5k 2016 t-shirts.
Almost 9:00 am and the the 140+ runners are at the starting line ready to go, the race goes from here at the S Division St Tram Station, up to 17th Street and back to the OC Life Saving Station Museum.
The mission of the Ocean City Museum Society is to inspire and support the interpretation and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of Ocean City, Maryland, the Worcester County coastal region, and equally, the historical role performed by the United States Life-Saving Service, and to preserve with subsequent mandate the 1891 structure that once served as the Ocean City Station.
If you have not had the opportunity to tour the Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum, it is time you did. It is great fun for kids of all ages, and adults who like to learn more about history of Ocean City MD. Open all year round with such permanent displays as the History of Ocean City MD Boardwalk, The Aquarium Room, Sands From Around The World, Davy Jones Locker and more.
During the summer months the Ocean City Life Saving Station Museum has daily classes for the kids on Monday thru Saturday; maritime knot tying, all about sharks and other cool stuff the kids will have fun doing.
