Show your passion for donuts and get out there with your friends and family on this flat, scenic course with delicioius Donuts!  Run, eat, repeat or Walk eat and eat!  Any combo will do!

We will give an award for first male and female finisher BUT for those who want to munch along the way, there’s no need to speed through the course!  Leave your cares behind!   This is a non competitive 5k with no timing or clock.  Prizes and awards will be given for top 3 individuals for best costumes and 1 group costume up to 6 people per group. 

Donut Run 5k:  All participants can grab a donut hole at the half way point and carb up at the Donut Hole Zone.  If you want to zip by and skip it you can!    No penalties for dashing by but what’s the rush?  Enjoy a treat along the way!  Lot’s of donut selfie spots so wear your best donut attire.  All finishers will also receive a donut shirt and custom race bib.  Sparkly medals will be given at the finish with your scrumptious Glee donut.  Flavors will include red velvet, blueberry and traditional glaze.   

5k Donut Challenge:  If you REALLY love donuts then sign right up!  Donut Challengers will snack on their donut hole and then get two more donuts to gobble up in the Challenge Zone.  You’ll also get a donut stick inflate to commemorate your challenge!  You don’t have to finish both donuts BEFORE glazin a trail back!  Eat what you can, there’s no penalty.  You still get your swag!  This year we are giving out custom donut run neck gaitors/ head scarf bandanas.  Super soft, comfy and useful for all seasons!
