​Participants may enter the costume-driven Donut Challenge and reign as Donut King or Queen.  How does one earn such a title?  Athletes will start the race with the 5K runners and will eat one donut at each mile marker (1, 2 and 3).  The first male and female to cross the finish line with no evidence of a donut for thirty seconds after crossing the line, wins!
