Running of the Donuts

Ocala, FL

IF THIS RACE IS PERMITTED, it will be a last minute decision to hold it. We are at the mercy of county and state virus mandates and we are hoping we can find circumstances acceptable to the authorities. There is a small possibility the race could be moved a week to June 13, 2020 if that will enable us to contest the race. Please be patient (havent we been for two months now?) check back, look for our emails, be ready to RUN and be flexible. Thank you, sincerely, for your support...Jim Shields

A fast 5K.....a donut eating challenge or a relay. Run one or both! The Running of the Donuts is a fun 5k race with a donut break in the middle. Run 1.5 miles, eat 6 donuts, run another 1.5 miles. For those who don’t like to eat and run, we offer a 5k (no donut) race that takes place 45 minutes before the donut run. For the bold, we have what we like to call the challenge. Run the open 5k, then come back for the donut run. Fastest combined time in the 5k and Donut run, will win the challenge.

Can you eat 6 donuts in the middle of running a 5k? Prove it by joining us for the Seventh Annual Running of the Donuts 5k on June 6th, 2020. The race will consist of a 1.5 mile run, a feast of 6 donuts, and another 1.5 mile run. The goal is to see who can do this the fastest!

If running a 5k and eating 6 donuts doesn’t sound appealing we have a 5k only option. The 5k will take place 45 minutes before the Donut Run as we have another twist. THE CHALLENGE!

What is the THE CHALLENGE? THE CHALLENGE is a combination of the open 5k run and the Donut Run. 6 donuts, 6 miles, and the fastest combined time is the winner! Are you up for THE CHALLENGE?

Want to do the Donut Run, but don't think you can handle 6 donuts and a 5k? We have you covered too! New this year is the Donut Run Relay. Run 1.5 Miles, eat 3 donuts, then let your partner do the rest!
