The Cupcake Run at Brier Creek Supporting Make-A-Wish Eastern NC
5K Run
Raleigh, NC
Event Overview

THANK YOU!!! This race has raised close to $35,000 for charities, with over $30,000 going to Make-A-Wish of Eastern North Carolina! 

Together we donated $10,500 in 2017 -  and we want to do even better in 2018!


Join us Saturday, October 13, 2018 (start time 8:00am)

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!

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!
