Two of my favorite things have joined together in matrimony! Ok, not really, but how fun does this look?

Event 1: The Gateway Cupcake 5K Run & Walk.

A classic battle between those who eat and those who compete.  The Gateway Cup Cake will pit speedy runners against speedy eaters in a battle between foot and mouth. Participants can deduct up to 5 minutes per Cupcake at 5 Cupcake Stations along the race course for a maximum of 25 minutes off of their finishing time.

The Rules.
  • Jilly's Cupcake Stations will be positioned at KM 1, KM 2, KM 3, KM 4 and just before the Finish Line. Cup Cakes must be consumed at each rest station in the Jilly's Cupcake Consumption Corral. Failure to keep the Cup Cakes down will result in disqualification.
  • Only one cupcake can be eaten per station. Please use wit and tactics.There will be two types of cupcakes available per Jilly's Cupcake Station. Mini Cupcakes- worth a 2 minute time deduction or the 'Standard'- worth a 5 minute time deduction.
  • The Overall Gateway Cup Cake 5K winner’s award, The Gateway Cup Cake, will be given to the fastest finisher- real time or Cup Cake adjusted time.
  • Top 3 men and women overall in both the Cupcake Adjusted Time Category and Real Time Category will win Gift Certificates to Jilly's Cupcake Bar and a signature gourmet Jilly's Gateway Cup Cake.

Who wants to get cupcake wasted?
