The NYC Cupcake Run is a challenge in which participants aim to complete a 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) run while stopping to eat three cupcakes at checkpoints throughout the course. Our 7th annual event will take place in Astoria Park on Saturday, October 12th, 2019 and is open to people of all ages. You can register here.

In a food obsessed metropolis where people are always on the run, putting together an event which pays tribute to some of the city’s defining characteristics seemed like a no-brainer. So grab your appetite and running shoes & join us for our 2nd annual event!

A portion of the proceeds from the race will benefit New York Cares. You can learn more about the organization here.
