The the Cake Race is Back! Times Two!

by | Aug 16, 2021

The Cake Race is Back! 2019 was the last time the race was held. COVID cancelled the event last year.


Calling all bakers! This beloved Davidson College tradition will take place on Wednesday, August 25, for all first-years and sophomores, who missed out last year due to the pandemic. Please consider making or buying a cake (or two) and delivering them to the Vance Athletic Center on August 25 between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.Questions? Contact Sue Daschner at [email protected].

Little did we know that when we covered the 2019 Cake Race, and shared the College’s April Fool’s joke that COVID would actually prevent the race from taking place in 2020. Read that story here.

And if you want to know more about the history of the event, read the piece that we published in “A Most Delicious Tradition” back in 2018.

We also have tons of photos from those previous races, check out our galleries: Cake Race 2018 and Cake Race 2019.
