Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash

The Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash is a non-profit event presented by Brown Mackie College  Birmingham and Pepsi benefiting Children’s of Alabama.

Inspired by the original Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh, NC, participants will complete a four-mile run and eat a dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in one hour or less.

Runners will start near Children’s Hospital in downtown Birmingham, run two miles to Railroad Park where they will eat a dozen doughnuts, then run back along the same route and finish back at the hospital.

Not up for eating a dozen doughnuts? No problem. Runners may register in the Casual Runner division and eat one, none, or some doughnuts, and take the rest home to enjoy.

All profits from this race will be donated to Children’s of Alabama.
