Fine Valentine Couple’s Relay News
Bring your sweetheart out to the Fine Valentine Couple’s Relay and Ramp Run on Sunday February 10th at 8:00 AM at Main Gate on University Ave. Team up for the 2-person relay where each team member runs 2 miles. No Valentine? No problem. Grab your best running buddy and enter the “just friends” category of the relay or sign up for the 4 mile individual run. Either way, be ready to run up some football stadium ramps. Also don’t forget the couple’s costume contest! Visit the Fine Valentine race page for more information. You can enter online at Active.com until midnight on February 7th or in person at the Running Shop on Saturday, February 9th from 11:00 to 2:00. Plus race day registration will be available from 6:30 to 7:30 on race morning. T-shirts with the race logo will be available to purchase race morning. They will be screen printed on-site, so your pick of color/size. $15 for cotton tees, $20 for tech tees.
This weekend’s race is the Fine Valentine Couple’s Relay and Open race, a low-key and (we hope) playful event that takes place at the University of Arizona and Main Gate Square.
