Early registration is $35, and registration June 3 is $40. Fees include bib numbers, timing, medals, T-shirts for the first 1,500 entrants and a post-race party and refreshments.

For more information about the race call 497-0189 or email theloverun@gmail.com.

The Love Run is a major fundraiser for Senior Concerns’ Meals-on-Wheels program. All proceeds go toward providing meals to homebound elderly people who cannot shop or prepare meals for themselves.

Forming teams for the races can be a great way to spotlight a business and increase community awareness of the event. Contact Stephanie at 497-0189 or stephanie@seniorconcerns.org to receive a team packet.
