Georgetown Parks and Recreation to host virtual Cupid’s Chase 5K and Fun Run
The 26th annual Cupid’s Chase 5K and Kids Fun Run is going virtual in 2021.
The virtual race will take place Feb. 13-21 with participants completing 3.1 miles at the location of their choice.
The registration cost is $25 for the 5K for ages 11 and up and $10 for the Kids Fun Run for ages 10 and under. Registration ends on Jan. 22.
All participants will receive a race T-shirt. The first 200 5K participants will also receive a cooling towel and all Kids Fun Run participants will receive a race T-shirt and a goody bag. Participants can select to pick up these items during packet pickup at the Georgetown Recreation Center or have them shipped to their home for a $5 shipping fee.
“While we love seeing our community gather in person for this race, we’re adapting our events to keep everyone safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Melissa Trahan-Pecorino, Special Events and Marketing Coordinator for Georgetown Parks and Recreation. “We are excited for the opportunity to continue this longstanding Georgetown community tradition in this ‘virtual’ format this year.”
The race will not be officially timed, but participants are encouraged to submit photos of their time to be entered into a drawing for door prizes.
Cupid’s Chase is sponsored by Georgetown Parks and Recreation. To register online or for details, go to cupid.georgetown.org.
