2nd Annual Dude’s Donut Dash
The Dude’s Donut Dash returns as one of the craziest events you have ever entered on Saturday, June 16 at 7:30 a.m.- 10:30 a.m. 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.
We have a virtual also. That means you run 3 miles anywhere in the world, take a picture with a donut in your mouth, and we will mail you a shirt and finisher award.
All finishers will receive a special edition Dude’s shirt, finisher award, milk, and donuts!
A portion of the proceeds will go to support a local orphanage house that the Pendergraft family has supported for many years. 62 years of donut experience, never hurts. For more information on the event, click here.
