Let’s Celebrate a New Decade of Donut Love!   

A big thank you goes out to all our loyal Donuteers for your patience as we bring the Great Donut Run back for 2022!!! We are so excited to see you again at the start line and we’ll have more donuts then ever!  We’ll be lining up at Irvine Valley College with a flat fast course that’s perfect for walkers and strollers.

Costume Prizes for the top 10 Best Dressed! Do-nut miss out!

We’ve got fabulous new donut swag and donut bling for EVERYONE!  All finishers get a donut medal shirt and lot’s of great selfie moments.  Grab your friends and family for another event filled with thousands of sprinkles and thousands of donuts!  This is a family fun run/ walk with no timing or division awards. Take all the time you want and do-nut miss the donut holes at the halfway point of the 5k.  If you’d like a shorter race we’ve got the 1 mile.  Both are open to all ages and abilities with no time limit.  If you’re extra ambitious you can do both and register for the Donut Double Dare!  Extra bling for the extra race!  For the kiddies in the bunch we’ve got shorter distances from 50 yards to 1/2 mile in our Kids Donut Dash.

1 mile event:   This is an out and back course and a great choice if your group has various ages and abilities and you want to keep your tribe together.  The flat course is stroller and walker friendly. 

15k race:  We’ll have scrumptious fresh donut holes at the half way point to help you carb up along the way. There’s also a water stop 1/2 way and the course winds through campus with scenic art and selfie stops along the way.   Do-nut miss out on all the photo ops!  This is also and out and back flat course.

The Donut Double Dare:  It’s a great challenge for those who want to earn extra bling. You’ll start with the 1 mile race and follow it up with the 5k race, at 8am!  These back to back races are a great way to challenge yourself and kick off your summer!   We’ll hold your 1 mile medal til you finish the 5k so you don’t have to run with it.  You can pick up your extra bling at the “sprinkle star” booth at the finish.  Get Glazy and Get Crazy with the Donut Double Dare!

Kids Donut Dash:  It’s a great way for kids to earn their own medal and donut at the finish!  We have distances based on age but they can run in whatever distance they want.  If a 7 yr old wants to just to the 100 yd dash or your 6 yr old wants to do the 1/4 mile, we welcome their choice!  Nothin but smiles in all categories!

All events are walker and stroller friendly and take place on a flat, closed course.  Run it fast or take your time!   These are all untimed events so there’s no rush!  Thousands of fresh donuts will be waiting for you at the finish.  This is fun filled way to spend a with friends and family who love donuts! 

Prizes and awards will be given for top 10 individuals for best costumes and 1 group costume award for up to 6 people per group.
