Pre-registration for the race will start December 1 and run through January 28.  Pre-registration costs $10 for a student (same price for those participating in only the kids dash); $25 for single registration; $30 for a couple; $40 for a family of five (each additional $10).  Same day registration is $5 more.

The race committee is looking for volunteers for the day of the race.  Volunteers will be needed at registration and on the course.  Cupid volunteers are also need to race after the runners/walkers to retrieve their cloth strips.  All volunteers on the course must be 18 years or older.  The morning of the race will feature hot chocolate donated by Biggby Coffee, water, a cupid warm-up dance party, DJ with music, and awards ceremony.
