Over the years the Valentine Run/Walk has become a classic event for individuals and families of all ages and abilities. The Valentine Run/Walk is kid friendly, stroller friendly, and canine-companion friendly! Participants are encouraged to wear their hearts on their sleeves, socks, tutus, onesies and collars to compete for best dressed awards and to show their love of the Valentine Run/Walk. Enjoy either a 1.8 mile untimed course or the 4 mile timed course that meanders through the Arden Park neighborhood behind Country Club Plaza Mall. After the run, enjoy refreshments, entertainment, vendors and of course a festive Awards Ceremony.

It was a wet afternoon at the inaugural Running of the Elves tonight in Elk Grove, but that didn’t dampen these runners spirits. Love to see the smiles. 😊 👍 Race Results: bit.ly/38h3HK6 #runningoftheelves @CityofElkGrove @district56eg pic.twitter.com/FDOkSFUSJZ
