The Deal

  • $27 for one entry in the Krispy Kreme Challenge ($50 value)

The Challenger category is for individual runners who wish to take on The Challenge and claim victory by consuming all 12 doughnuts and completing the race in under one hour. Only runners registered as Challengers will be eligible for winning. However, there is no penalty for runners who register as Challenger but do not complete The Challenge.

The Casual category is for individual runners who wish to take a more leisurely approach to the Challenge and enjoy as many or as few doughnuts as they wish.

Krispy Kreme Challenge

Plenty of people take up running to offset their love of donuts and other sweets. The Krispy Kreme Challenge, however, encourages runners to indulge their sweet teeth. The event, which began in 2004 as a challenge among North Carolina State undergrads, begins at the university's Memorial Belltower. Participants then run 2.5 miles through downtown Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme at Peace and Person Streets, where a dozen donuts are waiting in all their glazed glory. After consuming the donuts, runners head back to the bell tower as quickly as possible. Aside from testing runners' physical abilities, the race benefits the North Carolina Children's Hospital.
