About This Activity

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Hug-A-Cub 2016 Valentine’s Day 5K! We are excited and thrilled to have you kicking off your Valentine's Day weekend running with us. Supporting this race is a wonderful way to show your love for a cause near and dear to every adult heart: the education of our children. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the 760 students attending Endeavor Elementary School by helping us build a new playground. Earlier this school year, two of the largest pieces of playground equipment were removed because they had become unsafe. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS RACE WILL GO TOWARDS A NEW PLAYGROUND!

The Hug-A-Cub 2016 Valentine’s Day 5K and Fun Run will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2016. The 5K run is scheduled to begin at 8:00am, with the Fun Run to follow at 9:15am. We welcome runners and walkers of all levels and speeds and especially encourage children and their families to participate in the event! The 3.1-mile course will take you through the beautiful Magnolia Springs subdivision. WE ARE CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF HAVING THE COURSE CERTIFIED!! The Fun Run will take place on Endeavor Elementary School property.

The Hug-A-Cub 2016 Valentine’s Day 5K offers a unique racing opportunity for its participants. You may choose to register as an individual and be eligible for overall and age group awards or you can race as a couple and be eligible for a separate overall couples category.That’s right, we are offering Couples racing! It’s Valentine’s Day, who wouldn’t want the opportunity to race with his or her sweetie, child or best friend? NEW FOR 2016 IN THE COUPLES CATEGORY: Couples will also be eligible for overall and age group categories in addition to the overall couples category.
