On February 3rd, 2018, North Carolina’s most nationally publicized charity race returns to Raleigh, North Carolina for its 14th year. Beginning at the Memorial Bell Tower on NC State’s Campus, participants run 2.5 miles through historic downtown to the Krispy Kreme Store, where they attempt to consume one dozen original glazed doughnuts, and then run 2.5 miles back. The Challenge will be as big as ever, with an expected 8,000 participants all vying to be the CHALLENGE CHAMPION! But the race isn’t all about competition - all proceeds go to help fund the North Carolina Children’s Hospital. Since the inception of the race, the Krispy Kreme Challenge has raised over $1 Million for the hospital with a promise of another million by 2020. Join us in making a direct contribution to the North Carolina Children's Hospital while participating in the event of a lifetime.
