Some of us love it. Some of us hate it. Either way, you can't avoid Valentine's Day.

Why not spend the day with someone you LOVE at a 5K? Or maybe you will find LOVE at a 5K.

One thing's for sure: our Running for Love 5K will get your heart worked up. This unique Valentine's Day-themed race on February 10th will let other participants know whether you are married, in a relationship or looking for love - all by the color of the bib you choose. That way, your runners will know who to avoid, who to impress or maybe who to offer to buy a drink.

After the race, head back to our Lovers Lounge (better known as the Stone Balloon) for some drinks, food and romantic music. Ladies will receive a special chocolate flower when they enter the after-party. (Sorry, gentlemen, this race is not about you - just like the holiday.)

All participants will receive a complimentary Running for Love 5K champagne glass.


Custom bibs with NAME deadline.

Runners who register before January 28th at midnight will receive a custom bib with their name on it.

Registration after the 29th will receive a red bib without their name on it.

Breakfast in Bed

Or that is just what we are calling it.  

After the race head back to the Stone Balloon for Breakfast in Bed with Chef Robbie.

The award winning Chef is going to prepare a breakfast for you that is sure to  leave you wanting more.
