Anyone may sign up as a single, and couples must cross the finish line together, preferably holding hands. Couples can be anywhere from a friend, family member, or significant other. The event is Valentine's Day themed, so costumes are encouraged! Additionally, a half-mile fun-run is the perfect way to involve your little athletes-to-be!

ALL PARTICIPANTS must sign a release and reliability form and visual/audio release form, and all minors (17 years and younger) must have a parent guardian sign the forms.
