Cupid’s Crush is a 5 mile road race that takes place Valentine’s Day weekend around the lake and over the hills of Druid Hill Park. Debuting in 2015, the Baltimore Road Runners Club continues to make this the new February classic. Join us for questionable Maryland weather and a challenging and fun race.

Course: Scenic, rolling & winding throughout Druid Hill Park and around Baltimore Zoo. The original course has been rerouted due to the closure of the lake. The second half is still hilly and challenging. This is not a PR course.
