Runners from 11 different states and all over the Tampa Bay area participated in the Race for the Cupcake last season! Join us this season, as we once again compete on the "sugary" sands of Pass-a-Grille Beach!
This is a Spring Break race, so add a little healthy fun to your Florida vacation! Elite runners, running enthusiasts, families and beginners alike, will enjoy the beauty and charm St. Pete Beach has to offer.
Race for the Cupcake has been created, and is directed by, Jake Schultz, a local 6th grader hoping to make a difference in his community. "I worked really hard to make this race a favorite among the running community. It's going to be even bigger and better this year! Can't wait to see everyone in March-you all are the best! Thank you so much!" -Jake
Race ammenities include:
*Themed Awards for the top male/female and top masters male/female

Adjacent to Hurley Park (16th Ave and Gulf way), this 3.1 mile course is out and back and takes place on the hard-packed area of sand near the water's edge. Parking available along Gulf Way.
