The Trottin' Oxen Donut Relay

Fall 2024 Ashburn, VA 20147 US Directions


4-Person Donut Relay

11:00AM EDT - 1:30PM EDT

The 2024 Trotin' Oxen Donut Relay has been postponed due to weather

New Date: Fall 2024

The National Weather Service office has issued a heat advisory for the DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia area on Saturday, when heat indexes are expected to reach at least 105 to 107 degrees during the day, potentially extending into Sunday. 

We cannot in good conscious encourage outdoor physical activity during this weather event, so it is out of an abundance of caution that we must postpone the 2024 Donut Relay until later in the year, when the weather isn't as brutal. 

Thank you to all who signed up and volunteered to help. Please trust me when I say this decision was not made lightly. 



Old Ox Brewery

Ashburn, VA US 20147


Grab three of your closest, craziest friends and come out to Old Ox Brewery in Ashburn, VA on Saturday, June 22nd, for our 5th Annual Donut Relay! If you like donuts and running, or if you like donuts even more than you like running - this is the race for you!

Teams of 4 people come together to eat and run.  Each team must consume a dozen donuts between them, but how you divide them is up to you. Each person on the team of 4 has to  eat at least one donut - apart from that, anything goes!  One person eats nine and the other three eat one donut each?  Totally fine! The first three runners eat one donut each and leave the fourth runner to eat nine??  All's fair in run and donuts!

Each person starts their leg by eating their share of donuts (between 1 and 9 donuts each runner), then departs for a one-mile loop around the Old Ox Neighborhood before returning to the Donut Eating Exchange Zone behind Old Ox.  As soon as you hit the exchange zone - your next teammate can start slamming donuts.  

Each participant will get a free beer, an Ox special gift, and of course, a copious number of Krispy Kreme donuts!



What's a good race without a great after party?  As the relay finishes the party continues--relax, drink some tasty beverages and maybe some brunch!

We will start this event in waves if needed, with the teams expected to take longer starting earlier.  We will start the first wave at 11:00 am and expect every team to be finished by 1:00 pm.  Awards will be around 1:30 pm.  


A team captain must create a team-name and pay the entry fee up front.  They can either add each team-member when registering, or ask their teammates to enter themselves individually.  You do not have to enter all your team-members when you register, you can go back and do so, but their information must be entered before race-day.  If you have your teammates enter their own information - BE SURE THEY KNOW YOUR EXACT TEAM NAME.  In the past we have had several common names last year and this can get confusing.  


On race day from 9:30 am- 10:30am.  We will assign waves to each team.  Earlier waves must pick up their packet earlier, but later waves can come later.  The first wave will start at 11:00.  Detailed instructions will be emailed.
