Love ‘em or Leave ‘em Weather Update

Due to the recent snowfall and subsequent freezing temperatures as well as the prediction for significantly more snowfall on Friday evening into Saturday morning,  the 2019 Love ‘em or Leave ‘em Valentine’s Dash has been rescheduled for NEXT SATURDAY, February 16th at the same time and same location.

We have made this difficult decision after conversations with the City of Seattle  Special Events office, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and Seattle Emergency Management. We feel this rescheduling is necessary for the safety of our participants, volunteers, vendors and staff, not just while at or participating in the event but also while attempting to travel to Green Lake.

We apologize for the inconvenience and understand that circumstances may prevent some people from being able to attend the rescheduled event.  We have several options available to all registrants.  If you are unable to attend the rescheduled event on February 16th, we invite you to choose one of the options listed below:

  1. Participate in a “Virtual Run” of the event.   Run a measured 5K or 10K course on your own or with friends, and be sure to time it.  Send us your finishing time as well as the date you ran it and the route you used. We will create a results page and post all finishers and times on the Love ‘em site.  Then you can pick up your shirt, bib number and finisher medal at either Super Jock  ‘n Jill location (Green Lake or Redmond) after February 16th.
  2. Defer your entry to the 2020 Love ‘em or Leave ‘em event.  You will automatically be registered for next year’s event.
  3. Defer your Love ‘em entry into one of the following 2019 Pro-Motion Events later this year:
March 2  Mardi Gras Mayhem 5K  Magnuson Park
April 14  Mimosa Me Crazy 5K  Green Lake Park
May 4   Margarita Mayhem Magnuson Park
June 16 Father’s Day 12K, 5K Bothell, WA

September  8  Women of Wonder 10K & 5K    Green Lake Park
November 18     Green Lake Gobble 10K & 5K  Green Lake Park

If you do not plan on attending February 16th and choose one of the three options listed above, please contact us via email and let us know which option you choose. If choosing Option 3, please indicate which event you choose

                                    Thank you.
