Krispy Kreme Challenge

February 5, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

“2400 calories, 12 doughnuts, 5 miles, 1 hour.” The mantra of the Krispy Kreme Challenge epitomizes the test of physical fitness and gastrointestinal fortitude.  What started as a challenge among ten friends has transformed into a nationally publicized charity race, and the number one tradition to complete before graduating from North Carolina State University.

Participants begin the Challenge at the Memorial Belltower on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. 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. Krispy Kreme Challenge has been proud to support the UNC Children’s Hospital, a specialty-designed hospital that caters to the needs of sick or injured children and their families. Register online.
