The cupcake run is back! That’s right, Sweet by Holly presents the 6th Annual Cupcake Run 5K and 1 Mile Kids Cake Walk, benefitting Girls on the Run of Northeast Florida. This fun, family-friendly, frosting-filled event hits the St. Johns Town Center on April 4, 2020 and you’re not going to want to miss out!
Guys. It is just as awesome as it sounds. I had the pleasure of running the event in 2015 and loved every second of it. Not only was I surrounded by plenty of my favorite running people, but the idea of racing to that finish line cupcake was pretty motivating.
Here’s what you need to know:
What could be more fun than cupcakes and running? Not much, in my world. The Sweet by Holly Cupcake Run 5K and 1 Mile Kids Cake Walk is a blast all the way around. From the theming, to the signage, to the smiles on the faces of the race crew and volunteers, you’re in for a morning of good feelings.
Yes, the Cupcake Run 5K is an official gun-timed 5K with overall and age group awards for our more competitive friends, but it’s also the perfect, family-friendly event. The course is comprised of flat loops through the St. Johns Town Center shopping area. Walkers and strollers are both welcome (but please line up towards the back). For our littlest friends who aren’t quite ready for 3.1 miles, the 1 Mile Cake Walk is the perfect option.
Do you love great race swag? The Cupcake Run 5K and 1 Mile Kids Cake Walk delivers! Participants receive a Sweet by Holly Cupcake at the finish, vouchers for two more free cupcakes and a frozen yogurt (use these when picking up your packet at Sweet by Holly – talk about pre-race carb-loading!), blingy medals for both Cupcake Run and Kids Cake Walkm technical race shirt for 5K participants (cotton t-shirt for Kids Cake Walk participants), custom bibs for early registrants, and FREE race photos!
Did I mention costume contests? Well, prizes are awarded for the following: Best Cupcake Costume, Most Icing (accessories), Best Family Ensemble, Best Team Costume, and Best Team Name! You have plenty of time to plan!

How fun! I volunteered with Girls on The Run years ago – I love their program.
What a fun race!! I love themed races like this.
Cupcakes, frozen yogurts, free photos, fancy dress & running fun with the family, in support of a good cause – sounds like a pretty powerful combination. No wonder you enjoyed it.
