8th Annual Krispy Kreme Challenge Fun Run
Sunday, May 23, 2021
The Fleet Feet Bloomington Krispy Kreme Challenge Donut Run is a fun event for runners and walkers of all ages to celebrate the anniversary of our Store Opening on May 23, 2013.
We are returning to an in-person event for 2021 but this year's event will be a little different than in past years as we put in Covid protocols to keep runners and volunteers safe.
Participants will run or walk a three mile course in the neighborhood east of the store and will eat three Krispy Kreme Donuts. This year's event will be on the honor system and all registered participants will receive a commemorative Donut Run Visor. However: it is highly frowned upon to wear the coveted visor if you did not explicitly earn it by running three miles and eating three donuts.
All participants must be pre-registered. Participants will start in self-selected waves from 9:00 am - 10:30 am. Please check in at the store and pick up your bib no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time. Race registration fee: $15. (Familes just need to register for the number of visors they would like to take home - small children in strollers do not need to register.)
For a $5 donation to St. Jude participants may skip one donut. Since this year is on the honor system you may skip one, two or even three donuts. (And you can still wear the visor but you did something really nice for a great charity.)
This is a fun run - this is not an official race. The course is NOT closed to traffic and all participants are required to obey all traffic signals. (AKA - stop your Garmin!) Most of the route is on sidewalks, in the neighborborhood you can run against traffic on the street but please be mindful of cars. You will need to complete two loops in the neighborhood and you will pass a total of four donut stops - you can decide how and when to consume them. Eat four and you get extra bragging rights.
