Valentines 5k and 10K

RUNNING 4 LOVE is our second annual virtual event for all of you lovers out there. For this event, you get a medal set, which include TWO MEDALS (when put together they spell LOVE)! Keep one half of the medal for yourself and give the other medal to someone you LOVE in honor of Valentine’s Day! Or better yet, run the event together and share the medals when you’ve completed it! Plus, February is HEART MONTH, so we’ll be donating at least 15% from every registration to Heart to Heart International, an amazing organization that strengthens communities through improving health access, providing humanitarian development and administering crisis relief worldwide.

When: Complete your race any time in February.

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why: Because we want to celebrate LOVE!

Cost: 13-30 dollars per person.
