Cupid's Cup 5K postponed due to forecast

With Charlotte almost certain to get 1 to 3 inches of snow overnight, Cupid's Cup 5K officials have made the decision to postpone the popular race in Dilworth until next weekend.

The following is from an e-mail sent by organizers (that message should, in fact, be hitting registered participants' inboxes any minute -- if it's not already there):

"We consulted with the City of Charlotte, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and our race management team, and made the decision to reschedule the 6th Annual Cupid’s Cup 5K & Fitness Walk to ensure the safety of participants and volunteers. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience, but feel conditions may not be favorable for a road race in the morning.

"The event will be held Saturday, February 20th at 8 a.m. Details will be available on our Web site ( as well as via e-mail should there be any updates regarding the make-up day. Packet pick-up and registration will continue through February 19th at 7 p.m. at Charlotte Running Company on East Blvd. Thank you for supporting Cupid’s Cup 5K & Fitness Walk and Cardiovascular health programs at Carolinas Medical Center."

Will they extend registration? I wasn't going to be able to run it this weekend but could do it next weekend.

This will make my dog happy. I had just broken the news to him that I thought it would be too cold and bad out for him to run. He's checking his calendar but it looks like he's free next weekend.
