What is the Krispy Kreme Challenge? 2400 calories, 12 doughnuts, 5 miles, 1 hour.  The mantra of the Krispy Kreme Challenge epitomizes the test of physical fitness and gastrointestinal fortitude.

Participants begin the Challenge at the Memorial Belltower on the campus of North Carolina State University. Runners then travel 2.5 miles through historic downtown Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme located at the intersection of Peace and Person Streets, where they attempt to consume one dozen original glazed doughnuts. The hardest part of the Challenge awaits them as they run 2.5 miles back to the Memorial Belltower.

All proceeds from this student run, charity based race go to the UNC Children’s Hospital.
