Newark, DE US 19711

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 16th will let other participants know whether you are married, in a relationship or looking for love by your bib status. 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 Klondike Kate's) for some drinks, food and romantic music. Ladies will receive a special chocolate 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.
