One of the unique features of The Cupcake Run at Brier Creek 5k is our Runners' Village. Please support our sponsors by stopping by their booths and thanking them for helping to make this run a success! After you cross the finish line get your Gigi's Cupcake, take your kids to get their faces painted or play in a bounce house, then spend time posing for pictures with Wool E. Bull, Muddy Mudcat and checking out the vendor booths.
Thanks again for your support of The Cupcake Run at Brier Creek 5k Run/Walk. We look forward to seeing everyone on Oct. 12!
