Run Away Events was excited to take on the Seroogy’s Valentine Run hosted at Seroogy’s Chocolates in De Pere on February 5, 2o22. Whether you have ran the seroogy’s Valentine Run every year, or this is the first you are hearing of it, we are hopeful this recap gives you a taste of this wonderful 15k & 5k event and brings back “sweet” memories of those who participated.
The Seroogy’s Valentine Run takes place the first Saturday of February each year (the same day as VIP Night!) which means there is a good chance we will be graced by falling snow and bright clear winter skies.
Packet pick-up took place in a large heated tent right outside of Seroogy’s Chocolates in De Pere. seroogy’s Chocolates private lable Hot chocolate & coffee is served the morning of the event before & after the race to help keep everyone warm and comfortable.
Participants just have a short stroll up the block to Williams & Michigan St for the start of the events.
The event course travels through neighborhoods and the 15k course extends into Green Isle Park.
15k participants could choose to latch on with a pacing group from OnPace Race to try to reach a new personal best!
