Now that the weather is starting to cool down, getting inspired to go outside and work up a sweat can get tough. Need motivation? How about cupcakes? That’s right; we said CUPCAKES!

The fourth annual New York City Cupcake Run, sprinting into Astoria Park October 15, combines two seemingly opposite pastimes for one super-fun annual event. The 5k run (two laps around the park) features three stops for participants to enjoy cupcakes as they reach each checkpoint. Healthy choices are all about compromise, right?

All runners are invited to an after party at Rocky McBride’s featuring a free lunch and creative drink specials (pssst…I’m hearing there will be cupcake martinis!)
