The 2023 Running of the donuts will come back with the traditional Donut Run and Challenge.

You can run just the Open 5K, do THE CHALLENGE by running the open 5K and the Donut Run or you can run just the Donut Run by yourself or as a relay team.

The Challenge is running the open 5K and coming back in the Donut Run. Early reg is $35 and Late reg is $40. The race start time for the Donut Run is 9am.


The Donuts Relay is two runners. The first runner goes 1.5 miles then BOTH runners eat 6 donuts at the Donut STOP. The second runner then runs the second 1.5 miles and finishes the 5K. Earl reg is $40 and late reg is $45. Both runners receive a shirt, hence a slightly higher registration fee.

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND! We have expanded age groups in the senior years. Awards are now 65-69, 70-74, 75 and over. Thank you for your suggestions.
