Cupid 5K on Valentines Day will fight human trafficking
On Valentine’s day a 5k race through the streets of West Seattle will highlight and help fight human trafficking. Fetch Fitness, Starbucks Coffee, K2 Sports and ExOfficio are presenting the 1st annual Cupid 5K, a costumed urban race on Valentine's Night. The race will be run from 7:00 pm to 10:00 PM.
Money raised will go to the A21 Campaign, fighting sex trafficking & modern day slavery.
The racers break into two teams – Lovers and Haters – and take alternate routes to get to all of the checkpoints in a mad dash to the finish line. To make things more interesting, participants must do their best to dodge ‘Cupid’s grasp,’ Cupid 5K staff who will be in pursuit during the race. The evening culminates in two amazing after-parties, complete with prizes.
Both groups meet up at 7 p.m. in West Seattle, at the Alki Statue of Liberty located at 1702 Alki Ave SW, Seattle, WA. The race winds through the streets and parks of the Admiral District and along Alki Beach.
Early check-in is available on location 2 hours before the race. While the two teams ‘Lovers’ & ‘Haters’ run different routes, the race will begin and end at the same start & finish line. After the race, Lovers will reconvene at Alki Starbucks and Haters will stroll over to the historic Celtic Swell.
After party tickets are included in the cost of entry.
Registration is $36. To register, or for more information on either the Cupid 5K or the A21 Campaign, please visit www.Cupid5K.com.
