Seattle, WA - This Valentine's day, join us for a night of adventure through the streets of West Seattle as we race to end human trafficking. Fetch Fitness, Starbucks Coffee, K2 Sports and ExOfficio present the 1st annual Cupid 5K, a costumed urban race on Valentine's Night. Every cent we raise goes straight to the A21 Campaign, fighing sex trafficking & modern day slavery. No, we're not crazy, we're just crazy serious about this amazing cause.

The racers break into two teams – Lovers and Haters – and take alternate routes to get to all of the checkpoints in a mad dash to the finish line. To make things more interesting, participants must do their best to dodge 'Cupid's grasp,' Cupid 5K staff who will be in pursuit during the race. The evening culminates in two amazing after-parties, complete with prizes.

Both groups meet up at 7 p.m. in West Seattle, at the Alki Statue of Liberty located at 1702 Alki Ave SW, Seattle, WA. The race winds through the gorgeous streets and parks of West Seattle’s historic Admiral District and Alki Beach communities. Early check-in is available on location 2 hours before the race. While the two teams 'Lovers' & 'Haters' run different routes, we all begin and end at the same start & finish line. After the race, Lovers will reconvene at Alki Starbucks and Haters will stroll over to the historic Celtic Swell. After party tickets are included in the cost of entry.

Registration is $36. To register, or for more information on either the Cupid 5K or the A21 Campaign, please visit Cupid5K.com.
