A 5k where you eat cupcakes after each mile? Sure, why not.
The inaugural New York City Cupcake Run takes place this Saturday, Oct. 19 in Astoria Park. The 5K (3.1 mile) “run” puts participants through a course that features three cupcake-eating checkpoints.
Cupcakes provided by Astoria’s own Sweets First bakery.
Registration is $48.47 and includes an official NYC Cupcake Run t-shirt, race bib, three cupcakes, cupcake gift bag and a free post-race drink.
