When: Sun., Feb. 24, 9 a.m. 2008
Why let the love run out on February 14? The 30th annual Couples Relay will get hearts pumping at Oakland's LakeMerritt on Sunday, Feb. 24. Participants who register will line up at 568 Bellvue Avenue beginning at 9 a.m. From there, it's you or your sweetie heading out on a 5K jaunt around the lake. When your significant other returns, breathless to see you, it's your turn to follow her lead, and do 5K of your own, until you are back in her sweaty arms. The top three teams in each age division will get ribbons, and all participants will get a slice of anniversary cake. Love is never having to say, "Why couldn't you have saved a closing kick?" $22 per couple. Register by midnight on Saturday, Feb. 23 at LMJS.org.
