Runners participating in the annual Run 2 Love 2 Run event, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 15th, 2020, in Big Spring will experience a nice change of scenery this year. The race, traditionally held at the Big Spring State Park, has been moved to Comanche Trail Park. According to Craig Felty, Race Coordinator for Permian Basin Events, the race will begin and end at the new SM Energy pavilion, which is located between the Dora Roberts Community Center and the historic spring.
Felty told KBest News that they had made the change to try and make the race more accessible to people at different fitness levels. This year’s course at Comanche Trail Park, utilizes the old Rose Majers trail, runs past the spring and makes a loop through the park. Felty advised that the new course is an easy mix of road and trail that should be much flatter and faster than the Scenic Mountain course.
Online registration for the race is still available at Permianbasinevents.com. Cost for adults is $30, students and children are $20, and the entry fee for teams of 2 competing in the couple’s category is $50. Money raised from this year's race will benefit CASA of West Texas.
It should be noted that the entrance roads leading to the golf course and the Dora Roberts Community Center will remain open, but the rest of the park will be closed from 9:30 am – 11 am for the race.
