Cupid’s Chase is the largest, simultaneous 5K Run in the United States, taking place in 24 cities across ten states on the same day at the same time. In New York, the run will be taking place in Liverpool, Manhattan, and Binghamton. In 2011, Cupid’s Chase of Binghamton hosted over two hundred and thirty six runners, with over 10,000 people participating nationwide. This number is expected to double in 2012.
