Donut Run 5k:  All participants can carb up at the Donut Hole Zone near the half way point where delicious donut holes will be passed out by our Donuteer Team!

Strollers are allowed on the course and we ask that you line up towards the back of the race field when the run starts. The participant pushing the stroller can share their donut hole or donut with the child in the stroller. If the child or children in the stroller wants their own donut hole and donuts, they will have to register to get a bib and they will also get a medal and tshirt. Kids in strollers riding the 5k who want their own bib etc, can sign up for the kids dash discounted price.

Kids Donut Dash distances vary depending on the age of the participants.

Here is the breakdown:

  • 3 yr and under: 50 yards Start time: 9:30
  • 4-6 yr olds: 100 yards Start time: 9:35
  • 7-9 yr olds: 1/4 mile Start time: 9:40
  • 10-13 olds: 1/2 mile Start time: 9:45

Each kids race is staged on a course that goes out and back. Kids can turn around at anytime without penalty. Staff will be provided along the route to help direct the kids. Parents who register their kids and want to run with them may do so without registering themselves. We request only one parent per child. so there's room for all registered participants. Parents who are not registered for the 5k or kids run that want to run with their kids will not be eligible for a shirt, medal or donut.

5k Donut Challenge:  Participants will enter the Donut Challenge Zone after eating their donut holes and be handed 2 more donuts to devour BEFORE they glaze a trail back to the finish.  Lot's of water will be available!

Kids Donut Dash:  All participants will get to personally pick out their donut to munch on at the finish from a huge variety from our Donuteer Team.  Sprinkes, Powdered, Chocolate  Oh MY!

Note:  No "to go" orders on this course  What*?!  We can't take them with us.... you ask?  Nope.  In the spirit of being a fun run, there's no penalty for not finishing any donuts except a healthy rousing from your donut peers.  We kindly ask that you only eat in the donut zones where there's plenty of water to wash them down!  We also want to capture all your best donut eating tactics and award the most ambitious eaters!  Game on Donut Lovers!
