Cupcake Marathon

It's Like A Marathon But With A Cherry On Top

Christel (Silly Girl Running) and I had a Facebook conversation after she posted a comment regarding running for cupcakes.  It was a comical conversation that has led to this announcement.  For about 1 month now Christel and I have been working on creating a virtual race that fits into the training season for Spring Marathons.  We wanted to create a race that would incorporate runners and walkers, marathoners and half-marathoners.  In other words an all-inclusive race focused on getting people moving in 2011.

All of these conversations wound up with us creating the first Cupcake Marathon. The rules will be simple and laid out in a bit but know that whether you finish in 2 hours and 50 minutes or 6 hours that you have a chance to win prizes from some of our sponsors.  We are still working with some sponsors to finalize details and will keep adding as we move along which only means that there are more chances for you to win some fabulous prizes.

Now you are asking yourself where do the cupcakes come in.  I am hear to tell you that if you enter the race you will be sent three recipes for cupcakes from a cookbook that I have purchased and actually made all three recipes so I know how good they taste.  We are still trying to find a cupcake sponsor to actually send you cupcakes if you win, but in the event that we don’t find one and you don’t win you will still be running for cupcakes.
