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...

Since that sunny Saturday in March of 2010, Cupcake has grown from 11 people to a weekend of five races in March; a kids race, 5k, 10k, half marathon, and marathon. 

Our 2018 race will be the third weekend in March, on the 24 and 25 (Tory’s birthday again!!!!!!). Registration will open on December 15!

Start is at the Armar Rd. Trailhead on the Centennial Trail.
