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 12 participants, the race has grown exponentially to a whopping 5500 runners in 2009. The race 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 afull dozen of the famous Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the runner must run the 2 miles back. All in one hour.
The challenge attracts a wide range of runners from beginners to serious competitors hailing from all corners of the country. With an expected participation of 7,500 runners, we are expecting the 2011 race to be our greatest (and most beneficial) race yet.
