Channel your inner speedy-chick with mile races that are over in a flash!
Combine two of life’s sweetest pleasures (running and cake!) at the Cupcake Classic Backwards Mile. In this unorthodox event, participants are tasked with running (or walking) backward for one mile—looking over your shoulder is encouraged—before heading to the cupcake feast where there’s plenty of chocolate, vanilla and red velvet to go around.
Where: Olympia, Wash.
