Description

Run the Cupid 5K with us on Valentine's Day!! Celebrate the love of your life, or your love of running. Running single this year? No worries! Our bib numbers will have "single" on those who have indicated that they are, so if you see a hottie, just look at his/her bib number and strike up a conversation (socially distanced of course). You may find yourself a new running buddy!

This 5K course is an out-and-back which has a slight hill, but nothing too tough. All finishers will be awarded a Cupid 5K finisher's medal.

Commemorative t-shirts are available for pre-purchase for $15. Order yours when you register while supplies last. 

In Memory of Karen Newman

If you knew Karen Newman, you knew love and light. Karen was and continues to be such an inspiration to us. Never have we met anyone who had such faith, determination, positivity and love for everyone around her.

Karen began racing in our triathlons many years ago and went on to win a silver medal for the Masters Age Group at 2012's Triathlon World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand in addition to MANY other awards. Yet, she was never "too big" to participate in local races. In fact, the Cupid 5K was one of her favorites and when she came, she was dressed to the nines! The world lost Karen in November 2019. In her memory, Racevermont.com will be donating a percentage of the net income from this race to the Cancer Patient Support Foundation. Donations are also welcomed at registration - both online and in person. If you'd like to make a donation, feel free to click here to make a donation directly to the Cancer Patient Support Foundation.

Starting Groups/Corrals

Whether or not we use starting corrals for this race depends entirely on what the COVID-19 situation looks like as we get closer to race day. You will be asked for your race pace during registration. If the need for social distancing still exists, we will arrange rolling starts based on race pace. Stay tuned for more information.

General Race Rules

It is every racer’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with our Racer Rules. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach to us at info@racevermont.com.

  • Parking may be offsite for an event. We recommend you bring a backpack to carry your personal belongings.   Racevermont.com is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
  • Please be on time and arrive no later than 10 minutes before the close of registration.
  • If you decide to use a music device or cell phone while running, please keep your volume low enough that you can hear traffic coming your way and our volunteers and/or timing team should they need to get your attention.
  • Racevermont.com has no objection to and does not discourage the safe and prudent use of strollers or baby joggers during some of our races. They are not allowed in any race that uses the Ti Path as the path is relatively narrow and it may be difficult to for racers to get by a stroller if there are runners going in both directions. Stroller or baby joggers or similar devices should be started in the back of the runners and walkers if they are allowed.
  • Races must be courteous to other racers, volunteers, race officials, spectators at ALL times. Unsportsmanlike behavior will result in disqualification.
  • You will be running against traffic where instructed.
  • Do not run more than 2 abreast. Running down the middle of the road (or the middle of either lane) is strictly forbidden as the roads continue to be open to traffic.
  • All athletes must clearly display their bib #’s on the front of their body (not on the leg) throughout the race. Do not crumple your bib as this could cause damage to your timing chip which may result in the timing system missing you when you cross the start or finish line.
  • Race numbers MUST BE VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES, BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN APPROACHING THE FINISH LINE.
  • NO BANDITS ALLOWED!
