The Race attracts the area's elite runners as well as families and participants of all ages and abilities. Known as one of the region's most accessible races, the event is wheelchair and stroller friendly, and even hailed as one of California's top dog-friendly races. Child care with bounce houses and fun activities is available for a nominal fee. After the main race, participants are treated to breakfast snacks, entertainment, and a festive award ceremony.
The Valentine Run/Walk is one of the region's first races to award non-binary, gender inclusive race medals, in addition to those being awarded to male/female runners from various age groups. Special plaques will also be given for the fastest attorneys and the coveted "best dressed" awards for racers (and their dogs) wearing Valentine themed costumes.
