Weekend benefit runs abound this time of year for those looking to test their endurance. Flying Dog Brewery is well aware of this, but they’re looking to take some distance off the race, and add oysters.
Sprint for Spat is a .1K (100 meters) run in Fells Point Square (at South Broadway). The layout of the race is like this: Run 50 meters, grab an oyster shooter, run 50 more meters. Then, you’re free to go drink and eat more oysters.
With proceeds benefitting the Oyster Recovery Partnership, there will be half-shells from Chesapeake shuckers like Rappahannock River Oysters, Barren Island Oysters, and Hollywood Oyster Company. Proceeds also benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund. So, a few meters go a long way.
