In advance of the influx of chocolate and the lavish Valentine’s Day dinner you’ve got planned for next Friday, the Mosaic District is holding the inaugural Cupid Run 5K this Saturday. Participants can register as Individuals or Couples for the run (or, in my case, brisk walk) through the Merrifield shopping development. After the race, there will be hot chocolate and snacks for runners, massages and shirts, headbands and professional photos.
Advanced race registration is $35, increasing to $40 on Friday.
What: Cupid Run 5K
When: 9 a.m., Saturday, February 8
Where: Mosaic District, 2910 District Avenue, Merrifield, Va
