We have sold out of this year’s Pom Hat! We can no longer guarantee a premium to those registering. We have a few remaining hats from previous years that will be available at packet pickup while supplies last – first come, first serve. After the race, we will exchange with 2019 premiums if there are any left from ‘no-shows’ – also first come, first serve.
ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 2PM ON 2/8
Join us for our fifth year!
Cupid’s Crush is a 5 mile road race that takes place on Valentine’s Day weekend around the lake and over the hills of Druid Hill Park. Debuting in 2015, the Baltimore Road Runners Club hopes to make this the new February classic. Join us for questionable Maryland weather and a challenging and fun race.
Date: February 10, 2019
Location: Druid Hill Park – Baltimore, MD – 9:00 am
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.
Registration: Online registration on The Driven. $25 for BRRC members, $35 for non-members. You can join BRRC here. Running as a couple? Email firstname.lastname@example.org after you register to be eligible for our ‘Fastest Couple’ award. Race day registration will be available for $40. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee premiums to those registering on race day.
Packet Pickup: On site at Lakeside Pavilion (map), race day only starting at 8:00 am.
Amenities: All runners will receive the coveted Cupid’s Crush Pom Pom Knit Hat! Free race photos available for download! We’ll have some snacks and hot chocolate after the race too.
Race Conditions: February in Baltimore. Who knows? Probably cold.
Awards: Top 3 overall male and female – overall male and female masters – top 2 in ten year age group awards – fastest couple – also random prizes.
Post Race: We’ll have some music playing and some things to keep you warm. Awards will begin at 10:15 at the pavilion. This is a gussied up low-key race here, folks. Let’s have some fun.
