Heart Throb 5k

Terre Haute, IN

Online Registration is now turned off but you can still register for the event Friday evening from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. or on Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Bring yourself or your sweetheart for the 4th annual fun Valentine's Day run benefiting the Vigo County YMCA's Annual Campaign and Financial Assistance program.

This 5k race will begin and end at the Vigo County YMCA!

Winter Advisory Changes

Due to possible extreme temperatures on Saturday the Police Department is not allowed to have officers stationed outside for long periods of time for their safety. Because of this we have lost our traffic control on 1st street and due to this we have made some changes to our course and race day to make sure all of our participants can race safely yet competitively. Please see below for the following changes to race day.

New 5k and 1 Mile Start Time: 10:00 a.m.

New Course: Participants will now be doing a 2 loop course inside Fairbanks Park instead of the out and back along 1st street.

We also will now have a treadmill division. The YMCA has 12 treadmills and if you would feel safer competing indoors you can switch to the treadmill division and run your 5k or 1 mile indoors at the YMCA anytime between 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. The treadmill division will not be eligible for overall and age group awards but we will be posting your results in a seperate division so you can still see how you stack up overall and against others in your age group! If you choose to compete in the treadmill division please check in with our volunteers in the gym so they can check you into the division, give you directions, and record your time.

We will have a pre-race packet pickup on Friday from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Race Day packet pickup and registration will take place from 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Both of these activities will take place at the Vigo County YMCA
