We have all been waiting for this news: the Cupcake Run and Cake Walk, benefitting Girls on the Run of NE Florida, is VIRTUAL in 2020.
In a time when just about every race has moved to a virtual option, this is not a surprise. While this changes a few things, at the end of the day, we are coming together to support Girls On The Run of Northeast Florida, an amazing organization who needs us now, more than ever.
I Registered For The Race. Now What Do I Do?
Honestly, the only thing that has changed is you will now run your distance on your own instead of at the venue. Complete your 3.1 miles on Saturday, September 19 in your most festive cupcake-themed gear and be part of the sweetest race around.
Can I Still Register?
Yes! You absolutely can! Registration will continue for the 5K only, until September 13 or until all medals are spoken for. This is a great way to give yourself motivation to keep training and support a wonderful cause. And who wouldn’t want this gorgeous bling?
How Do I Get My Swag?
The Cupcake Run always promises amazing swag and amenities, and you won’t miss out, even if the race isn’t happening in person. If you live within 50 miles of the St. Johns Town Center, you’ll be able to pick up your packet in person at Sweet By Holly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, September 15, 16, and 17 from 10:00AM – 2:00PM and 5:00PM – 8:00PM.
This is also a great time to grab your free cupcake and use your voucher for two more cupcakes and frozen yogurt. We’ll call it carb-loading.
If you are outside the local area, your packet will be mailed to you prior to race day.
Support Girls On The Run of Northeast Florida
Girls On The Run of Northeast Florida is an incredible program. It is designed to inspire girls and young woman, through the sport of running, to recognize their inner strength and embrace their uniqueness. It fosters confidence, teaches life skills, and supports a love of health and fitness. This initiative helps girls recognize their power and strength so they can grow in confidence and change the world.
We need as much of that positivity as we can get these days. Will you help?
