Join us on Saturday February 11th 2023 for the Love On The Run Valentine’s “Live Virtual” 5k/10k. This is no ordinary virtual run. It's a unique “live virtual” running event, with thousands of runners who have already experienced and love our "live virtual" race format. Among other things, there is a scheduled race date and start time (Saturday February 11th at 8am Eastern time USA), a virtual check in and start via Text or Facebook live-stream on race day morning (with late check in up until 11am Eastern for our West Coast runners), timekeeping (runners will provide screenshots or pictures of their chosen method of time and distance keeping), a private and active Facebook group dedicated to our "live virtual" runners, and custom laser engraving for the back of the medal for age group winners. All participants will receive the custom one of a kindLove On The Run race medal, with age group winners receiving the engraving for their medal back.
******* If you cannot or do not wish to participate on the scheduled “live virtual” race date of 2/11/2023 during the race window (8am to 11am Eastern time USA on race day), you can absolutely still register. Please select the "medal only" option, and you can run it virtually whenever you like. But, keep in mind, you won't be eligible for age group awards (engraving on your medal) or to be counted among the "official" times posted after race day.******
Participants should join our private Facebook Group for access to positive discussions and posts regarding our live virtual races, race day live-stream virtual check-in and virtual start. But,Facebook is NOT required to participate. If you’re not on Facebook you will have the option to check in and submit your time on race day via TEXT.

Timekeeping for “live virtual” participants on the Feb. 11th race day: Given the unique nature of each runner's situation, we will accept proof of completed 5k or 10k on race day via text only (to be provided in pre-race emails).

Or, runners using a fitness watch may snap a pic of their watch-face and text it in. It is entirely the runner's choice, and responsibility to choose where you run/walk your race, and follow all your own local laws, directives, regulations, etc. Your text must be received by 11am Eastern time on race day.
