VIRGINIA BEACH-What are your plans for Valentine's Day? Flowers, dinner, chocolates? How about going for a good run afterwards to run off the extra calories.  

The 2014 Bon Secours In Motion Virginia is for Lovers Races is February 16. 

It was originally set for Feb. 15, but organizers has to change dates since the 15 is a snow make-up day for Beach schools. The change was needed because the race required roads to be closed and the course goes by three different schools.

4,000 people are expected for the event, which begins at 9 a.m. The 2014 Bon Secours In Motion Virginia is For Lovers 14k and Sweetheart 6k presented by StellarOne Bank start in front of the Virginia Beach Field House.
