From Press Release –
Updated January 7, 2011 – AA Sports Limited has made the decision to move the Heart Breaker Half Marathon, 5k & 10k to Sunday, February 20 from its originally scheduled date one week earlier. The Valentine Fanconi Anemia Run/Walk (a fundraiser for Fanconi anemia research) was also slated to take place on the same, originally scheduled date (Feb 13) in downtown Portland. AA Sports felt it was necessary to reschedule the Heart Breaker Half to February 20 to avoid this date conflict and to offer runners and walkers in the Portland community the opportunity to participate in both events rather than having to choose one over the other. Mark your calendars for February 20 and spread the word about this inaugural event.
As the title suggests, the event will include a half marathon (Portland’s only February half marathon), as well as a 5K and 10K Run/Walk. The Heart Breaker Half and related events will take place on Sunday, February 20 at the World Trade Center in downtown Portland, OR, and include both individual and team divisions. Each participant will receive a beautiful finisher medal, and long sleeved commemorative T-shirt (guaranteed if registered by 2/14).
A post race celebration will take place with food, music, and prizes drawings. So whether you are in love, out of love, or looking for love, be sure to check out Portland’s newest and only half marathon in the month of February. Registration is limited so don’t delay!
