Valentine 5K

2021 Virtual Valentine 5K

This year's Valentine 5K will be completely virtual! What does that mean? It means runners will be able to sign up, pick up a shirt (or have it mailed), run any 5K route they wish, and then post their time online. Since it is impossible to determine who has the best time, due to varying route difficulties, winners of this year's race will be determined base on the outfits/costumes they choose to run in. Runners with the most creative outfits will be eligible to win one of the following prizes for their category (overall, couple, or youth (12 & under))

1st Place: Free pair of shoes from Mountain Running Company

2nd Place: $50 Gift Certificate from Take A Hike Outfitters

3rd Place: $25 Gift Certificate from The Trailhead Restaurant & Bar

Registration: $20 for Adults, $15 for Youth
**This year we are super excited to be partnering once again with the Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth, and Families. Half of all registration fees will be donated back to the Black Mountain Home. For more information about the amazing work they do, click here. **
