Join us on September 22nd for the fourth annual Cupcake Run/Walk in West Lafayette.  This will be a chip-timed 5K and 10K on a beautiful course.  We will also be offering a short, untimed kids run of about 80 yards.  Each participant will receive a t-shirt, participant medal and cupcake from Gigi's!  This race benefits the Public Schools Foundation of Tippecanoe County.  Our mission is to promote excellence in education and encourage classroom innovation by providing grants in academics and the arts to teachers in the public schools in Tippecanoe County.  

RETURNING PARTICIPANTS: please note that due to scheduled construction projects at Cumberland Park, the route has been slightly modified from previous years and is a touch shorter than 5K. In areas where the trail is under construction, we will be using a lane of the road that is marked off with barricades to protect the participants.  Also, at the start of the race, the route crosses over the grass and curb to reach the street. For those not wanting to go over the curb (e.g. strollers), there is a sidewalk next to the street that can be used instead.  There will be plenty of course marshals and police officers to help direct you safely along the race course. 

NEW IN 2019: Our race colors this year are black, pink, and white.  The participant t-shirt will be black with a pink and white logo.  Want to upgrade to a unisex tech shirt?  That option is available for a $10 fee.  Want to personalize your bib?  You can, for no additional fee!

SCHOOL PARTICIPATION CONTEST:  If you are a teacher, student, or school employee, please indicate as such on your registration, as well as what school you represent. The school with the most participants will receive a traveling trophy.  Help out your school and get as many friends/coworkers to participate and win that trophy!  Are you a teacher?  The fastest male teacher and the fastest female teacher will each receive a special award! 

PACKET PICKUP: Saturday Sept 21 from 2:00 – 7:00 pm at Gigi’s Cupcakes.  170 S Creasy Ln Ste 1710, Lafayette, IN 47905.
PACKET PICKUP: Sunday Sept 22 will open at 8:00 am at Cumberland Park.
