Want A Challenge? Here you go...

Lately, I have noticed a couple of running events that seem to be a little.... CRAZY? I don't mind a challenge (I really don't), but I draw a line when a running/competition challenge includes a food challenge. But that's just me... If you think that this makes things even more interesting and/ or fun, you might want to look at this race:

The Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual, student-operated race in Raleigh, North Carolina benefiting the NC Children's Hospital. Beginning in 2004 with a mere 10 participants,the race has grown exponentially to a whopping 5,500 runners in the 2009 race and has rapidly become one of NC State University's newest traditions.

Beginning at the NC State Belltower, each runner runs 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme store located on Peace St. in Raleigh. After downing a full dozen of the famous Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the runner must run the two miles back. All in one hour.

The challenge attracts a wide range of runners fom beginners to serious competitors hailing from all corners of the country.


CHALLENGER: $16.004 miles, 12 doughnuts, and a t-shirt.

CASUAL: $16.004 miles, some doughnuts, and a t-shirt.

SUPPORTER: $10.00T-shirt only
