Runners who want a race T-shirt have until Jan. 28 to sign up for the couples-themed Love Run, a Feb. 10 fundraiser for the North Bend cross country program.

The 5-kilometer race is scheduled for Feb. 10, starting at 10 a.m. at Simpson Park in North Bend.

All registration is online, with the deadline to get a shirt Jan. 28. Runners who have not signed up still can register, but won't get a race shirt. 

While the run is designed for couples, individuals also are encouraged to run. Hand-crafted medals will be given to both individuals and couples. Couples need to sign up on one entry form and also finish the race together.

The event is described as a fun, muddy, mucky and rope-climbing race and will take participants through trails and neighborhoods.

Funds generated this year will be used to send athletes to the Steens Mountain Running Camp and help with the purchase of running shoes.

The winning couple receives a gift basket including a $50 gift certificate to O’s Restaurant, a photo frame, a candle and a $15 gift card to Coming Attractions Movie Theater.

The first female finisher wins a $50 gift card from Ugg’s. The first male receives Sony San Vil Wireless Headphones.

Also, along the course runners can win free popcorn from Sweet Streets Popcorn Shop; a pottery party for six kids from the Pottery Co.; shampoo and conditioner from Salon Bella; a growler with a fill, a baseball hat or a set of drinking glasses from 7 Devils Brewing Co.; a candle from Canard Labs; a $25 gift card from Ciccarelli’s Restaurant; a $25 gift card from Always Unique with Tammy; a $10 gift card from Coos Bay Grocery Outlet; a water bottle; an RCA portable DVD player; or lots of pens, notebooks, balloons, markers and more from the Coos Bay Fire Department.
