We’re happy to benefit Riley Children’s Foundation for our 6th Be My Valentine 5K Run/Walk!

Grab your sweetie (or a running buddy) and join us for a fun run downtown! Celebrate your Valentine weekend with a 5K through a beautiful course near Mass Ave!

Much of the run is near the Cultural Trail.  Hot chocolate, popcorn, wine or beer or soda, and more snacks for all participants as well as a finishers medal and a large fleece blanket! (We thought last year’s blanket was too small).

Overall and age-group awards

New this year: Two televisions given to two random winners! (one tv each).  You must be present to win. The drawing will be around 9:45am (15 minutes before the race).



Medals? Everyone receives a medal!

When Saturday, February 9, 2019! Registration/Check-In will be open at 8 a.m.  Check-In is INDOORS!!!

Where The Athenaeum, 407 E Michigan, Indy 46204

Can my dog run? Yes – and no charge:)  you know the rules… clean up…  Dogs are not permitted in The Athenaeum, so have someone with you to watch them or check in for you.

May I push a stroller? Yes – please be courteous of runners in a hurry.

Shirts? Nope – you get a fleece blanket instead.

I’ve never done a 5K, would this be a good one for me? Yes!  We have several new runners and walkers.

Last year the weather was wonderful. Will it be warm again? Who knows… We have a lot of indoor space if it isn’t nice.

What if it snows? Unless the City of Indianapolis declares a weather emergency, the event is on.  You probably won’t get a PR, but you will have fun running in the snow.

What if it is canceled? Again, we will only cancel if the City makes us… In that case, the event will not be rescheduled. You may still get your blanket and bib; just contact Fun-Races.  There are no refunds.

Where do I park? It’s downtown- many options depending on how much you want to pay or walk.
