What started as a challenge among ten friends has transformed into a nationally publicized charity race, and a major Triangle milestone. Plus, all money raised supports the North Carolina Children's Hospital.
Participants begin the Challenge at the Memorial Belltower on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. Runners then travel 2.5 miles through historic downtown Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme located at the intersection of Peace and Person Streets, where they attempt to consume one dozen original glazed doughnuts. The hardest part of the Challenge awaits them as they run 2.5 miles back to the Memorial Belltower.
If the thought of eating even one doughnut makes your tummy turn, consider coming out and watching the shenanigans from the sidelines. You'll probably get a good laugh—that's basically a workout, right?
