Krispy Kreme Challenge @ Hillsborough Street
Feb 2 all-day

The Krispy Kreme Challenge is a student-run, charity-based race dedicated to supporting the mission of the North Carolina Children’s Hospital. We strive for a safe and fun event to bring together both the local community and international running scene to compete in a unique challenge of both athletic and gastrointestinal skill.

On February 3rd, 2018, we hosted 5,516 people for the 14th annual Krispy Kreme Challenge, where we donated $170,000 to the UNC Children’s Hospital, bringing the cumulative donation to over an impressive $1.5 million. We are now UNC Children’s Hospital’s largest unrestricted donor.

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.
