Dude's Donut Dash

Dude's Donut Dash

The Dude's Donut Dash returns as one of the craziest events you have ever entered. Let's break down how this works in the two distances offered:

The Mouthwatering Mile: Take off as fast as you want, or hang back at the starting gun and devour an entire Dude's glazed for a 2 minute deduction (only 1 donut allowed per station) from your overall time. Show one of the judges you have eaten completely, get a stamp on your bib, and then head out. At the 1/2 mile turn is another chance at a 2 minute deduction by downing another Dude's glazed. Show the judge, get a stamp, and make your way to the finish. To clarify: Runner 1 runs, eats nothing, and runs a 6:30 mile. A 6:30 mile is his or her time. Runner 2 runs, eats 2, runs a 10:00 mile, but nets a 6:00 mile for the donut deductions. Runner 2 is your winner in this scenario.

A Sweet 3 Miles: Same over all concept as the Mouthwatering Mile, except everyone takes off at the same time without a starting line donut and make their way to 5 stations on the course with 4 minute deductions per station. Judge must see and stamp. That equates to 20 minutes of potential time deduction on the course with 5 eaten (maximum). Runner 1 clips off a 21 minute 3 mile race and eats nothing; runner 2 jogs a 40 and nets a 20 minute event. Runner 2 is your winner. 

All runners will receive a unique finisher award at the end of the race. Participants of the 3 mile challenge will receive an event shirt. Guarantee your shirt if you register by June 1st.
