On February 11 we have our first race of the 2018 race season with Love the Run You’re With 5k. The premise of Love the Run is the perfect winter blend of relationships and running. When you register for the race you get to select your status and can select if you’d like to run as a part of pair or as a single runner. Here’s the way bibs and status are broken down for the event, just for your planning purposes of course!
- Co- Dependent, in a relationship or keeping mum on the subject altogether (Red)
- Stupid Cupid, don’t love the Valentine’s Day holiday, are single, or running on a team with a pal (Green)
- Love’em or Leave’em, it’s complicated… (Yellow)
This year we are taking the fun of Love Run to the Board Room VA for a pre-race party on Wednesday February 7 at 6:30pm. We are hosting our own version of the Dating Game, you know the one, one contestant picking from three potential dates separated by a screen and united by witty banter. Our Race DJ Edward Daniels will be on hand to spin tunes and MC the event where love is bound to win.
We are currently accepting applications for players now until February 1. If you have already registered to run you can email [email protected] and she will get you in the mix. If you have not register to run yet you can indicate your interest in playing the Dating Game with your race registration. We will let all potential matches know if they are in the game or not on February 2 so you can plan and get your team prepped for the 7th. We are looking to match four daters on February 7 so get your name in the mix, or talk your friend into giving love a chance in 2018.
Let’s say your are happily Co-Dependent, you can still come to the party to cheer your running friends on in their quest for love. You know how we come cheer each other on at big races? This is the same idea plus the additional twist of being out in “real” clothing with a crew you maybe only see on the trails. In short, everyone is welcome, no matter your relationship status.
Last perk of the evening, we will have packet pick up at the Board Room from 6-9pm so you can get your race number and your Love the Run You’re With scarf ahead of race day and a DJ and the Dating Game!
