Race Description

The 17th Annual Valentine Run 5K begins at beautiful Lake Tomahawk Park and visits 3 of Black Mountain’s Greenways. The 5K course offers several challenging hills and ample flats. The final 1/2 mile follows the gravel path around the lake and finishes at the Lakeview Center. Enter as a two person team or go solo. All participants are included in the Overall and Age Group awards. The 5K is a 2016 Asheville Track Club GP event. Kick off Valentine’s Day with a run with your sweetheart. Husband/Wife teams compete in one of three categories. Not married? Run with your Mom, Dad, friend, or neighbor. Any two people can be a team. Awards go to the top 5K team in the following divisions: Husband/Wife (three categories) , Mother/Daughter, Mother/Son, Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Sister/Sister, Brother/Brother, Sister/Brother, & Open (any couple). Always a favorite the Kids ½ mile Fun Run is one lap around the lake. The path is free of traffic and monitored by race volunteers allowing kids to run freely with or without an adult support crew. We encourage all kids and adults to wear Valentine costumes, as the “Spirit Award” will be given to the most outrageous outfits. The Free Kids Fun Run Starts at 9:00AM and is Free. The 5K Starts at 9:30.
