Event Overview

The Cupcake Run at Brier Creek
Presented by
Brier Creek Commons and American Asset Corporation

Join us Saturday, October 20, 2018 (start time 8:00am)

** Please note the new date!  Hurricane Florence disrupted our original plans. With Wake County Schools holding a makeup day on Oct. 13 we changed the date to accommodate the large number of children who run this event **

We are excited to offer a race that has something for everyone and at the same time, benefits a cause very dear to the partners of FS Series and to Brier Creek Commons.
The event is stroller-friendly and pet-friendly so don't worry about getting a babysitter or a dogsitter - we don't want anyone in the family left behind!

If you can't make it to Brier Creek don't worry -- we have added a Virtual Run option. When you register as a virtual runner, you can run, jog, or walk on the road, in your neighborhood, on the treadmill, at the health club or anywhere you want. And you don't have to worry about finding a parking space and standing in line for the porta potty! Your swag will be mailed to you - including a Gigi's Cupcake voucher. Find out more on the Registration page.

After starting in front of the Clock Tower you will have one last chance to wave to your friends and family as you head through Brier Creek towards DICK's Sporting Goods. But don’t worry, those waiting at the finish line will be entertained by the sounds of DJ Alex and will be visiting our event sponsor booths in our Runner's Village checking out the giveaways.

The kids may decide to take a jump in the bounce house or get a design painted on their face. Regardless, they won’t even know you’re gone by the time you return with a PR.

Your fans will be waiting at the finish line to cheer you on!  


Race Amenities

Runners will receive the official 2018 Cupcake Run 5K T-shirt and finisher's medal, and a CUPCAKE - it's called The Cupcake Run for a reason! All runners will also get water and light refreshments at the finish line. Children will be able to enjoy the Bounce House, Face Painters and lots of fun activities. Stick around and have a fun morning with your family.

Tell your friends, family, co-workers – put together a team and encourage everyone to come out to support Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina by participating in The Cupcake Run at Brier Creek. 
Register now, this will be a popular event!
