Cupcake Run/Walk for Public Education (Virtual)

Sun September 20, 2020 West Lafayette, IN 47906 US

September 17, 2020 update: We are now out of shirts but still have plenty of medals!

August 12, 2020 update: Regretfully, we've made the difficult decision to transition this year's event to be virtual only. What does this mean? You can still get your bib, shirt, and medal, and you can participate in the event on your own timeline and at your preferred location. You could even skip the run altogether and still get all the swag! And of course, you will still get a delicious Gigi's cupcake from our Lafayette bakery. On your bib will be a tear-off coupon you can turn in to Gigi's to claim your free cupcake.  

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.  

NEW IN 2020: Our race colors this year are Caribbean Blue and Island Yellow.  Want to upgrade to a unisex tech shirt?  That option is available for a $10 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!  

DRIVE-THROUGH PACKET PICKUP: Saturday Sept 19, 2:00 - 6:00 PM in the parking lot behind Gigi's Cupcakes at 170 S. Creasy Lane, Lafayette IN 47905
