Krispy Kreme donuts are so addicting, people are even running just to eat them!
Once a year, nearly 7,000 people will dress in their favorite running gear or costume to attack the Krispy Kreme Challenge. You have 1 hour to eat a dozen donuts … while running 5 miles. The race starts and ends at the North Carolina State University Belltower, looping through downtown Raleigh, NC.
If you are not feeling up for the challenge, you can sign up as a casual runner/eater. If you do not finish the donuts, you can take them home with you.
Not only does the Krispy Kreme challenge feed the hunger of it’s runners, it has also raised $1.35 million for the UNC Children’s Hospital over the past 13 years.
This year’s race will take place on Saturday, Frbruary 1st. To register for the race you can click here. If you do not want to actually take place in the challenge, you can shop, volunteer and donate to the cause as well.
