What better way to celebrate love than doing something you love?! Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic jog, a single ready to mingle in your running shoes, or a group celebrating Galentine’s Day with strides, we’ve got you covered. Let’s explore some fun and engaging date ideas for runners this Valentine’s Day!


Ideas for Couples and Groups: Run and Picnic

Plan a run through a scenic route and follow it up with a romantic picnic at one of San Diego’s many beautiful locations:

Kate Sessions Park in Pacific Beach is a beautiful choice for a post-run picnic! Get some hill practice by running in the neighborhood around the park, or run by the water, and then drive up to the park. Talk about stunning city and bay views. It’s a peaceful place to unwind and watch the sunset.

Tidelands Park on Coronado is another perfect spot for groups or couples to run/walk and picnic. It’s an ideal place to get in 2-4 easy miles. It’s mostly flat and on the waterfront, with an easy turnaround at Centennial Park.

Mount Soledad is an excellent option for an intense stair workout and a fantastic view. Get your sweat on with your Valentine!


Ideas for Singles: Milestone Running Club

Milestone’s Hump Day Run Club meets every Wednesday, including Valentine’s Day, at their North Park store. If you’re single and ready to meet people who share your passion for running, this could be a great place to start. They have 3-5 mile routes, and it’s always free to join.
