Welcome to the inaugural running of the 2015 Hug-A-Cub Valentine’s Day 5K! We are excited and thrilled to have you spending your Valentine’s Day morning 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 700 students attending Endeavor Elementary School.

The Hug-A-Cub Valentine’s Day 5K and Fun Run will take place on Saturday, February 14, 2015. 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. The Fun Run will take place on Endeavor Elementary School property.

The Hug-A-Cub 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?

Did we mention that there will be chocolate? Come and join us in support of the students of Endeavor Elementary School!
