There are just a handful of places remaining for the newest romantically charged event, the Run Your Heart Out Valentine’s 10K. Sunday 10 February will represent the first staging of the Scunthorpe race, which is organised by Tape2Tape, the team behind the popular Gruesome Twosome 10K North Lincolnshire Half Marathon.
Launched towards the end of 2018, the race has a central couples elemenl – when sigining up, you can link your entry to that of your partner/friend. Prizes for the first five couples over the line (based on aggregated finish positions….no need to run holding hands and finish together!)
While the 10k takes place on Valentine’s weekend, it isn’t just for those romantically involved - singles are welcome, who knows you may meet your partner for a 2020 double! Organisers promise a fast and flat course departing from Quibell Park in Scunthorpe with the route estimated to have just 250m of incline.
The event will be supporting the British Heart Foundation, with a voluntary option to donate £1 to the charity when entering. All finishers will receive a fantastic medal (pictured) and Valentine’s themed gift.
Registration for the Run Your Heart Out Valentine’s 10K is priced at £20 (or £18 for affiliated runners) and available here.
