Press Release: 4th Annual Storm Warriors 5K Run / Walk
LIFE-SAVING STATION MUSEUM READIES FOR STORM WARRIORS 5K RUN/WALK
4th Annual Storm Warriors 5K Run / Walk
The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum Society will hold its 4th Annual Storm Warriors 5K Run /
Walk on Sat., Nov. 11 on the Boardwalk starting at the Museum.
Sign-in/registration is 8 a.m.; the race begins at 9:00 am. The 5K is 3.1 miles.
“The 4th Annual Storm Warriors 5K Run / Walk has proven to be a very popular event. Participation has grown every year,” said Nancy Howard, event coordinator. “We hope that folks will come out to support the Museum. Get your day started with a brisk run or walk and then have the rest of the day to enjoy all that Ocean City and the area have to offer.”
The Museum has been a staple in Ocean City since 1978. The mission of the 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.
Permanent exhibits represent both the heroic deeds of the surfmen who staffed the station and
the history of the area — including the storm of 1933 that cut the inlet, the Boardwalk of
Yesterday, Sands of the World and a recently installed exhibit on Native Americans of the area.
Currently the Museum has on display an exhibit oriented toward children with interactive
activities. There is a small aquarium room that houses local sea creatures. Children particularly
like this display.
The Society is responsible for designing and producing the exhibits as well as collecting artifacts
that help visitors experience the mission of our Society. The proceeds from the 5k will go a long
way toward enhancing the Museum.
Participants, runners and walkers’ in the 4th Annual Storm Warriors 5K Run / Walk will receive a t-shirt.
There is a $25 registration fee.
OC TriRunning, an organization that has done many of these events, is managing the race. During the
race water will be provided to the runners/walkers. At the conclusion of the race there will be
‘refreshments.’ It is possible to register the day of the event but t-shirts may not be available.
