The SCRC Love Run is scheduled for Valentine’s Day – Saturday, February 14, 2015. Hosted by non-profit South Coast Running Club, the Love Run is a casual affair with a Valentine’s Day theme. I would be surprised if at least one person did not show up dressed as a cold-weather cupid!
Where: Simpson Park in North Bend, Ore.
What time: 10a
The SCRC is a road and trail 5k. After the race, stick around for “Valentine’s themed gifts and prizes.” Registration info was not yet available online, but SCRC races are very low-cost and friendly events.
(The following is completely not running related, but while I’m spreading the love, I figured why not?)
And if you are looking for something to give from the heart that also benefits the local community, may I recommend the Meals-on-Wheels Valentine-a-gram? It’s not running related, but all proceeds benefit Meals-on-Wheels! If you think flowers are a waste of money and are trying to avoid the cliche heart-shaped box of chocolates at all costs, you might like this one. I’ve gotten it for my husband the past few years, so that I could confiscate the Jamba Juice and cookie coupon. Delivered on Friday, February 13, each $29.95 Valentine-a-gram includes:
- Two heart shaped Ghirardelli fudge brownies drizzled with chocolate sauce and white chocolate shavings
- Two strawberries dipped in dark chocolate
- Poplandia Popcorn
- Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider
- Jamba Juice free 16oz smoothie coupon
- Kobos Coffee
- Bridge City Cafe free cookie coupon
- Stash Tea Sampler
- Justin’s Nut Butter
- A special message from you!
