January 21, 2022 | Press Release.pdf
(New York City) – On Saturday, February 12th, Community Options will host its 14th annual Cupid’s Chase 5k event in support of people with disabilities. Previously held at Riverside Park, the 2022 New York City Cupid’s Chase has moved to historic Randall’s Island. Randall’s Island has breathtaking city views, is a hub for international and regional sports competitions and attracts athletes from all boroughs.
Community Options holds their annual 5K to raise money to help support individuals with disabilities in their local communities. Each runner will receive a shirt that says “Available” or “Unavailable” in spirit of the Valentine’s Day theme. You can register for any of our race locations at CUPIDSCHASE.ORG.
“The start and finish are next to Icahn Stadium where professional track athletes, including para-athletes,
compete. That is what I love about running. It brings people together,” said Brendan Dagan, Founder of
EliteFeats Running Company. “The Cupid’s Chase races have a spirit of inclusivity and it is an honor being part of them.”
Cupid’s Chase registrations have been selling at a historic rate across the country as runners anxiously await the return to in-person running. If projections hold, the series will have more than 5,000 runners in total. Last year, due to COVID-19, the series suffered a significant drop in registrations and in-person runs.
