Cupid’s Crush is a 5 mile road race that takes place around the Valentine’s Day holiday. The race will take runners around (near) the lake and over the hills of Druid Hill Park. Debuting in 2015, this race has definitively become the Baltimore Road Runners February classic. Join us for questionable Maryland weather and a challenging and fun race. And remember…love is in the air this time of year so wear your favorite Valentine’s race attire (keep it classy). You may win a prize!
