In the same vein as the numerous Knightdale Holiday Events held at Knightdale Station that have become tradition, the town’s parks and recreation department will be hosting the 3rd Annual annual Valentine’s Day themed, five kilometer “Cupid Run,” this upcoming Saturday, February 10.
Based upon the fantastic response and turnout from the community at the inaugural Cupid Run event in 2017, it was some what of a no-brainer for it to be included amongst the calendar of Knightdale Holiday Events for a second straight year. Joining another of the successful Knightdale Holiday Events that has now become an annual tradition in the community, the Turkey Leg 5K, which takes place around Thanksgiving, these “fun runs” not only to give the community another way enjoy a great day of family fun, but they also promote a healthy lifestyle and outdoor living in the local community.
The Cupid Run will kick off at 9:30 a.m. and start in Knightdale Station Park. Registration for the event is on going right now and in addition to taking part in the newest tradition among the Knightdale Holiday Events, by signing up, you will also get a winter hat, a medal for finishing the 5K and a timing bib. In addition to the finisher medals there will also be medals given out to the first, second, and third place male and female finishers. Keeping in the festive and fun feel of all Knightdale Holiday Events, there will also be medals awarded for the “Best Dressed” in accordance with the Valentine’s Day theme, much as they do in November’s “Turkey Leg” event.
There will be refreshments on hand as well at the Cupid Run, and there will be a “Water Table” sponsored by Zaxby’s of Knightdale and Triangle Dental Assisting.
If you have signed up for the 2018 Cupid Run, you can pick up your information packet on the event either at registration on race day at Knightdale Station Park, or at Town Hall, 950 Steeple Square Court in Knightdale on the first floor on Friday, February 9 between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm.
