Valentine's Couple's Relay and Fun Run In Tucson!

The Valentine's Couple's Run and Relay has always been one of my favorite running events - and just in time to make extra calorie room for all the chocolate and goodies I am sure to eat a couple days later!

The run is on Saturday, February 12th and the choice of distances are, for individuals - 4 miles or 2 miles, a couple's 4 mile relay and a children's fun run at the end.

These are some highlights of the event from the Southern Arizona Roadrunners website:

  • Energy drinks, gluten and soy free protein drinks and bars and an immune booster/antioxidant juice at rest stops
  • Post-run hand massages courtesy of Main Gate's Aveda (the best part after a run!)
  • Every Couple Relay team receives a free carnation from Roses and More
  • Post-run dining discounts to Wilko, Vila Thai, and Sinbad's Mediterranean
  • Black t-shirt courtesy of funding from Muscle Milk and Tucson Medical Center -lightweight shirt with new race logo.
    Fresh local fruit from Food Conspiracy Co-op.

It's a new course this year that starts at University Blvd by the UA so I'll be excited to try it out!

Gabrielle, good tips! I am starting a gluten free diet as I understand that processed wheat does some not so healthy things for the bod...

I had no idea that anything like this existed!  I'll be otherwise occupied due to previous commitments, but I'll look forward to next year's event!  Thanks for blogging.

Great idea to inspire a little romance while you are doing a healthy beneficial thing.  Nice exposure about the event, looks like fun!

This will be the only event in America where couples run away from each other to cross the finish line. Sounds like great family fun.

Gabrielle, I hope you have fun time at the Fun Run! Lucky you (and the other participants) to get that hand massage afterwards...ahhhhhhhhh...only thing better would be foot massages as well! :)
