New England Valentines Races 2022

Registration for a few 2022 races has opened. Since the 2021 and 2021 races canceled, 2022 should be a great year!

Looking for a New England Valentines race for 2022?

In New England we believe in getting outside, even in the middle of winter. New England Valentines Races are a great excuse to go out for a run with your somebody special. And for 2022, it’s looks like these will be in-person events.

  1. These all sound like fun! But I guess you are right: the best bet is to probably run it alone with loved one.

    Most of Europe is in a hard lockdown right now because of the new variant of the virus. I guess it will take a while until things are back to normal.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Andy!
