WE HAD A BLAST at the 2016 Cupcake RUN! We literally experienced exponential growth over 2015, and are excited to bring this annual event to Atlanta's community.
As media outlets like the Wall Street Journal (http://www.wsj.com/articles/black-runners-find-more-company-on-racecourses-1477412583) are just jumping on the bandwagon, we've known for a long time that African Americans have a great interest in running both leisurely and competitively. In a recent article (see link above), the WSJ highlights the steady increase in Black runners' participation in 5K's, 10K's and marathons across the U.S. despite waning participation trends overall. With inspiration from organizations like Black Girls Run, Georgia Favor House, and Pretty Girls Run, we're so excited that the Cupcake RUN! is a part of this momentum and we look forward to continuing the upward trend.
Stay tuned for registration details for the 2017 Cupcake RUN! We sell out fast, so be sure to get in early!
