Fourth Annual Cupcake Run 

Cupcake Marathon

This race started four years ago when Tory got the idea that she'd like to run 45 kilometers on her 45th birthday. It was a small "fat" style race that turned out to be a great deal of fun. (A "fat" race is a race where you have little or no facilities, no shirt, no medal, and no whining.

Last year we added some shorter distances and turned it into a very family-friendly run that raises money to support a local family or charity in need. 

This year we've added even more! It's still going to be a nice small hometown race, but will include:

  • A 5k and 10k option
  • A 10 mile, half marathon, and full marathon option
  • A real medal for all finishers of all distances
  • Both full and half marathon options on an out and back race (no more double out and back).
  • A few more water stops that will include ultra-like food, water, and eletrolyte gels.
  • Prizes for top three men and women in all races.
  • Hopefully more to come! We are contacting local places for sponsorships!

Proceeds from this race will go to Miracle 4 Matthew. Twelve year old Matthew Sheppard suffered from head pain at school on June 15, 2012 and was airlifted to Harborview. Doctors were conflicted on his diagnosis, but the outcome is that this vivacious, headstrong 12 year old (now 13) spent 98 days in Children's Hospital and is in a powered wheelchair and has a lot of healing ahead of him. Since I myself am a stroke survivor, I wanted the profit from my race to go help someone who had suffered a similar (although dramatically more serious) situation. 

There will be a donation can at the race and we are hoping Matthew and his mother can come out. You can read more about Matt here:
