Love the Run You're With logoSeveral streets in and around Pentagon City will be closed Sunday (Feb. 10) for the Love the Run You’re With 5K race.

The race starts and ends in front of the Pentagon Row shopping area on S. Joyce Street. According to the Arlington County Police Department, S. Joyce Street will be closed between 15th Street S. and Army Navy Drive from 07:30 to 10:30 a.m., and Army Navy Drive will be closed between S. Joyce Street and 25th Street S. from 8:45 to 10:00 a.m.

“Street parking in the area will be restricted. Motorists should be on the lookout for temporary ‘No Parking’ signs,” the police department said in a press release. “Race attendees are encouraged to use Metro, however, if driving please utilize the parking garage at the Pentagon City mall.”

Individual registration is still open for the race, which is organized by Pacers. The Valentine’s Day-themed race caters to both couples and singles. Participants are given different colored race bibs depending on whether their relationship status is “single,” “in a relationship” or “it’s complicated.”

    So how are people who live in the the Archstone, Metropolitan, and 1401 supposed to leave their buildings if they need to drive to work, the hospital, etc.?

      Well, just to warn you there is another race in the P Row area in June. Every year, just like this one. 🙂

    I was wondering how long it would take for people to start complaining about road closures hampering their ability to get around!

      Imagine the nerve of the people wanting to get in and out of their building — some people !!

        Hmm, I don’t recall that all the building doors are supposed to be chained shut.

    Leave the building? It’s called walking or leaving early/later than usual. I for one can’t wait for the race!

    I wish the county would make them turn down the volume.
