The Cupcake Run started with 11 runners running with Tory on her 45th birthday on the Centennial Trail. Everyone ran either 45k (about a marathon) or 22.5 k (about a half marathon) and at the end, we all had cake to celebrate! The entry fee was a donation to the Marysville Food Bank. And thus history was born...

This year for Short & Sweet not only are we adding a Half Marathon, but we are partnering with Beautiful Soles. Their focus is so close to our own, we decided that we could reach more people by working together to raise money to help families in need at that important back to school time.
