The Doughnut Run 5K is the only race around where you a rewarded for eating donuts! Each donut you eat at one of the aid stations on the course takes additional time off of your finishing time.

Teams scores will be scored like a typical cross country meet were they add together the places of the top 4 team members and the lowest team score wins. Teams can be mixed gender or single gender and the participants doughnut adjusted places will be used for this determination.
