The 20th Annual Valentine Run 5K begins at beautiful Lake Tomahawk Park and visits three of the Black Mountain’s Greenways.  The course offers several challenging hills and ample flats to gain ground and time!  The final 1/2 mile follows the gravel path around the lake and finishes at the Lakeview Center. Enter as a two person team or go solo. All participants are included in the Overall and Age Group awards. The 5K is part of the 2019 Asheville Track Club Grand Prix.

Two Person Teams: Kick off Valentine’s Day week with a run with your sweetheart. Husband/Wife teams compete in one of four categories based on total age: Silver (80 & under), Gold (81-99), Platinum (100 – 119), and Titanium (120 & Over). Not married? Run with your Mom, Dad, friend, or neighbor. Any two people can be a team. Awards go to the top 5K team in the following divisions: Husband/Wife (four categories) , Mother/Daughter, Mother/Son, Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Sister/Sister, Brother/Brother, Sister/Brother, & Open (any couple) – M/F, M/M, & F/F. Team participants are also included in the Overall and Age Group results and scoring.

Kids Fun Run: Always a favorite the Kids ½ mile Fun Run one lap around Tomahawk. The path is free of traffic and monitored  by race volunteers allowing kids to run freely with or without an adult support crew. All children participating will receive Valentine Fun Run medals.  We encourage kids to wear Valentine costumes, as the “Spirit Award” will be given to the most outrageous outfit. The Kids Fun Run Starts at 9:30AM and is Free. We do ask that they register online by Feb 9th or onsite by 8:30AM on race day.

5K Individual Awards & Age Groups: Awards will go to the top three M/F overall and to the top three M/F finishers in the following age groups: 12 & under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, & 80+
