February 11th, 2011 · No Comments

Thanks to our sister site My Green Lake for this story.

Garett Slettebak, Director of Marketing at Pro-Motion Events, Inc., asked us to alert the neighborhood that “things will be getting busy” this Saturday (Feb. 12, 2011) in Green Lake.

More than 3,000 registrants are expected at the Love ‘em or Leave ‘em Valentine’s Day Dash at Green Lake Park. The 5K run/walk will begin on the southwest side of the lake, near the Aqua Theater, at 9:30 a.m.

West Green Lake Way, near the Aqua Theater parking lot, will be completely closed from 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.

From 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., clockwise traffic will not be permitted in the lane closest to the park on all perimeter roads around Green Lake.

Aurora Ave N will remain open, as will the outer lane of counter-clockwise traffic around the lake.

You can read more about the event and find registration details here. Photos from last year’s Valentine’s Day Dash are available here.
