Numerous couples celebrated Valentine’s Day a week early by running in the 2014 Cupid’s Combo and Frigid 10K.

Despite the light snow shower and freezing temps, the race was not canceled and took place on Saturday, February 8 at the Sedgwick County Park.

Participants in the Cupid’s Combo Race ran the 10K race with a partner, each completing one 5K loop inside the park. After completing the 5K, the first partner passed off the ‘rose’ baton to the second partner to finish the second half of the race. If runners were solo, they completed the complete 10K individually.

Included in this “sweetheart” race was a surprise proposal between two of the race’s participants at the finish line. The answer? She said yes!
