The Physical Education and Kinesiology Club held its 14th annual Valentine’s Day Run Saturday, Feb. 11 at CSU Bakersfield.

Students and community members took part in the 5K and 10K runs.

The PEAK Club said this event is a way for students and the community to stay active. Organizers said there were 334 participants in the 5K and 75 participants in the 10K.

Marbella Mendoza, who had never been on campus before, said she enjoyed the race.

“It was nice,” said Mendoza. “The track was pretty clean and clear. It wasn’t too slope-y, which was pretty nice for me.”

The entry fee for the event was $22 if participants pre-registered and $25 if they registered after Jan. 31. PEAK Club Treasurer Daniel Serrano said all the proceeds for the event go to club activities and resources.
