Great Donut Run routes

Donut Run 5k:  All participants will have an opporutnity to carb up at the Donut Hole Zone.  Each participant will receive a delicious donut hole near the half way point which they can eat on the spot or skip entirely.  No penalties for not eating a donut hole, but what’s the rush?  Enjoy a treat along the way!  All finishers will also receive a donut after they finish along with thier medal.  Donut shirts will be given when their packet is picked up.

5k Donut Challenge:  Participants that enter the Donut Challenge will get their donut hole at the Donut Hole Zone and continue to our special Donut Challenge Zone where Volunteer Donuteers will hand out two additional donuts to participants entered in the challenge division.  The goal is to finish both donuts BEFORE glazin a trail back to the finish but there’s no donut penalty for not finishing them.  Lot’s of water will be available!  No “to go” orders in this area.  Everyone must leave the zones donut free.  If you finish both donuts you’ll receive a surprise donut swag to go!

Donut Course:

This is a 2 loop course on paved pathways surrounding the park.  After the first loop you’ll pass the donut hole station and after the 2nd loop you’ll turn into the finishline arch!  It’s a very flat course and stroller friendly. We ask that all stroller participants line up in the back.
