The Cupcake 5k is a fun, family run that supports the work of Urban Connections on the Near East Side of Columbus. Held at Scioto Audubon Metro Park in the beautiful scenery, this fun includes part of the Scioto Greenway Trail, and views of downtown. This is not a timed run, though we will have a clock at the finish line. Most of the trail is paved, with a short distance on compacted gravel. Families and groups are welcome. Enjoy a beautiful setting, support a good cause, and walk away with a delicious cupcake! Participants will have the opportunity to earn an extra cupcake by doing part of the park’s obstacle course on their run, too!
Register & Pay online: $35/adult; $15/youth (12 & under)

There are two options for picking up registration packets:
1. Friday, August 16th, at Urban Connections House: 11am – 7pm
(447 Fairwood Ave, Columbus, OH 43205) – this is easier, will give you your bib, and means you can sleep in and skip the line at registration.
2. Saturday, August 17th at Scioto Audubon Park: 7:30-8:10am
T-shirts available for registrants who sign up online through August 1, and on a first come, first served basis for those registering after August 1.
Parking: Follow signs to the Climbing Wall, where three parking lots are available near the rock climbing wall and water tower.
Route: This 5k follows trails at Scioto-Audubon Park, mostly paved, with a small loop of compacted gravel around the obstacle course. There will be 2 water stations.
