If you're not heading to this weekend's Myrtle Beach marathon, half-marathon, or 5k then why not run a race that's closer to home?
On Saturday, Feb. 13 there are a couple of local races and one a little further away in Greensboro.
- Cupid's Cup 5k & 1.5 Mile Fitness Walk: Word on the street is that this will be a fast course with some of the best local racers showing their skills. Online registration is closed and there will be no on-site registration, but you can register in person at the Charlotte Running Company's Dilworth location, 1412 East Blvd., Ste. G, Charlotte, NC.
- Valentine's Day 5k and Fun Run (Denver, NC): If you're more inclined (sorry, bad pun) to run a hilly course then look into this race on the western side of Lake Norman. In addition to the usual overall and age group awards there will be awards for the fastest couples.
- Valentine's Day Massacre Marathon and Relay (Greensboro, NC): They say there's a fine line between pain and pleasure, and here's your chance to prove it. Taking place on Valentine's Day, this race consists of multiple laps of a 1.6-mile loop. It's a Boston qualifier for solo participants, but most of the participants will be in four-person teams.
Happy Valentine's Day!
