The Cupcake Classic 2012

Virtual 5k Fun Run!
FREE to participate!

The Cupcake Classic is a fun run for women of all fitness levels. There are no awards, as fitness offers its own rewards! You can run, jog or walk. As sisters, moms, daughters, friends, we make choices every day to lead our families and communities towards a healthier life. The Cupcake Classic celebrates those daily efforts.  Gather up your friends, go for a run and then treat yourselves with a cupcake... because the FIT LIFE IS SO SO SWEET!

WHAT: A virtual race is running a specified distance, timing yourself, without actually being present in a race location. A 5k equals 3.1 miles.

WHEN: October 14 - 21, 2012

WHERE: Pick your favorite local route or jump on the treadmill.

WHY: Fun, Fitness, Friendship... and PRIZES!

HOW: Late registration? No problem... click HERE for the virtual race packet.

  35. I'm in! Hope to be able to run the majority of it. I'm learning, very slowly, to run. I started in May on a c25k program that takes 12 weeks. I'm on week 6 day 1. I have asthma so, I have to take it slow. I was able to run on the treadmill for 23 mins last week, so I should be able to run the majority by October 14. Thank you for this goal!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Is there an event page on your FB page anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just saw this through CLICK's page. I don't live that far from Peoria but cannot do the Sunday run, at least not at the time specified. I've been gearing up for a 5K so I'm excited about this!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just ordered a medal as an incentive to get back into running or to get into longer/more consistent walking. My exercise has been all over the place, and the results of that are apparent. :/ Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just found your site and registered for your cupcake classic! I see that I've missed all the bling and things, but would love a medal/shirt (L) if you have extras.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Totally registering! What a cool idea.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I received my medal today!! As soon as I opened it my two year old had to try it on. She has *such* a baby face, but this particular photo of her looks so grown up. She's all about us running and eating cupcakes together! :D http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e95/Aviatrixt/IMAG3001.jpg

  59. Thank you so much for doing a second order of shirts! Can you tell me how they fit? Are they on the long side? I hate to order it and then never wear it! :)

    1. There is a size chart link above. I feel that they run pretty true to size. I wear a L which is normally what I wear in fitness gear. Feedback I've gotten on this style shirt is that the big run big and the small run small. LOL... hope that helps!

  60. How do I add myself? I can't find the link to register. Just the link to the virtual race packet. Do I just send in my finish time after I run?
    Can't wait!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. What if it is raining and storming tonight? Can we pick up our packets somewhere??? When will you do the drawing? Sorry about all this bad luck, it is clear that you have gone to a great deal of effort to put this together!
