Here are the event details:
  • Join us for our second annual Cupcake Run/Walk for Public Education on Sunday, September 24, 2017. Enjoy a beautiful fall morning in Tippecanoe County, get a Gigi’s cupcake, and support public education all at the same time!  There will be a distance for everyone: 5K, 10K, and even a fun 80 yard run for the kids.  Everyone gets a cupcake, a medal and a t-shirt!
  • For those running the Purdue Half Marathon in October, this will provide you with a great opportunity for a training run. Our course starts and ends at Cumberland Park in West Lafayette.  We’ll follow the NW Greenway Trail and wind our way through the Purdue Research Park.  The 10K route will repeat the 5K loop.  Click here for a course map  We’re excited to partner with Fun Races for our event.  They bring a wealth of experience to the table.
  • Runners/walkers of all types are welcome!  With three distances available, there really is something for everyone.  Walk with your family and enjoy the scenery, run with a friend and race to the end, challenge yourself for a personal best, or just come to cheer on the participants.  Cheer squads are always a welcome sight on a race course!  Strollers are welcome, but please no dogs.
