For the love of running

Valentine’s Day weekend is a time of love, but it’s also a time to get hot and sweaty with that special someone.

The Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati will be hosting its 23rd annual Valentine’s Labor of Love 2-mile run, Feb. 16 at noon beginning at Regent’s Hall.

All proceeds from the race will go to Norse Athletics to help start a track team at NKU.

Michael Moyer, president of the Runners’ Club and former NKU student, anticipates the largest turnout for the race in years based on an increase of promotions from the past.

“We’d like to see 1,000 (participants). What do I really expect?” said Moyer. “That’s difficult to say since we’ve tried a lot of different things this year. I’m hoping for about 700.”

Moyer ran cross country while at NKU and has been loyal to the program ever since.

“I love it.
