Great Donut Run

May 21, 2023 · Irvine, CA

Distance: 5K

We’ve all made it through some tough years with flying sprinkles!  We’re excited to get our donut game face back on!  If you LOVE donuts then this is for YOU!  We’ve got fabulous new donut swag and donut bling for EVERYONE!  All finsihers 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 al 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 starts at 7:30.   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 at 8am.   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 starts at 7:30!  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!

Get your munchkins in the Kids Donut Dash at 9:15 is the fan favorite race to watch.  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!
