Welcome to the 6th Annual 2017 Cupcake 5k! Join us for a 5:30 PM start time with a celebration of victory (and Memorial Day) with burgers, hot dogs coleslaw, baked beans, CUPCAKES and live DJ music to follow!
Cupcake station at mile 1 and 2... why wait to enjoy cupcakes AFTER the event when you can enjoy them on-course too!!

Also, we added a Run Virtual option (US Residents Only) for those who want the medal and rock the swag but can't be at the event!
This event is all about second chances, and celebrating our personal victories! This year you can still run in HONOR or in MEMORY of loved ones or friends and then dedicate it to them by writing their names on our dedication tags and wearing during your run!
At the 6th Annual Cupcake 5k, It's YOUR Victory!!
Please note: This race sells out 2 weeks in advance every year! We are raising the field to accommodate more participants but don't delay. We will not allow any more participants once this event sells out.
