Run, walk or just flirt your way to the finish line. ethos, producer of the Boston Triathlon, has just announced LUV RUN, a non-competitive, non-timed 5K experience for both singles and fun-loving couples. The first ever LUV RUN Boston will take place on August 4, 2013 at 11 am. The start of the run will be at Carson Beach and will take place on a separate closed course alongside the Boston Triathlon.

Building on a growing trend of themed athletic events, the LUV RUN brings together athletes and non-athletes and those just looking for an entertaining experience for a 5K run along the ocean in Boston. The LUV RUN will offer a fun-filled energetic atmosphere that allows runners, walkers and joggers to relax and connect with each other along the way.

“As we worked to put together the Boston Triathlon, we realized that there was an opportunity to bring together individuals who might be interested in a fun 5K, but weren’t interested in the training need to complete a triathlon,” said Michael O’Neil, founder of ethos. “The LUV RUN is designed to appeal to a wide audience, folks that are interested in coming together to meet new people in a super-fun, no-pressure setting.”

All participants are welcome, no matter what their relationship status happens to be. Upon registering, runners will be issued color-coded bibs highlighting them as available, hooked up or LGBT participants. Individuals will be assigned to a staggered start time, based upon their relationship status. At the finish line, participants will be encourage to celebrate their accomplishments at the post-race celebration, offering food, drink, entertainment and the opportunity to get to know their fellow runners just a little bit better.

“Today, events don’t always have to be all about endurance and athletic competition. It is more about the total experience, bringing people who enjoy being active and who want to have some fun together” said Michael O’Neil, founder of ethos. “There is incredible demand for themed events that combine an active challenge with the social aspects of having fun with like-minded people. The LUV RUN continues this trend combining the fun of themed running with the opportunity to meet people who enjoy similar activities. We see a great demand for this event.”
The Luv RUN is presented by ethos, and supported by its founding partners Michelob Ultra, City Sports, Tribe Hummus and Fitness Singles. For more information or to register, visit http://luvrun.com/
