Registration opens in September for the race that is held in early November. Each participant receives a packet that includes their race number, some information about CUSR, inserts for upcoming events at both the Champaign and Urbana Park Districts t-shirt, and other giveaways.
The race is run starting on Parkland Way between the Dodds Complex, runs around the entire Parkland Campus and for a brief time through the neighborhood just west of Parkland. The 2017 race will be held on November 5th.
CUSR appreciates the major sponsorship of Parkland for use of the campus and Body n’ Sole for race coordination and timing services. And all the support from the many local business owners and community members whom make donations to the Cupcake 5K.
