The Rules

  • This is an open course, that means there could be other people on the trail. Be aware!
  • You may stop after three laps and eat as many donuts as you like.
  • For every donut you eat 1 min will be deducted from your finish time.
  • You may only have 1 donut in your hand at a time.
  • You do not need to finish eating your last donut before you start running, but it must be finished before you cross the finish line for the time deduction to count.
  • The person with the lowest overall donut-adjusted finish time wins.
  • You do not have to eat any donuts, but you must tell volunteers your name at the turnaround point
  • You have 60 minutes to complete the course. After that the race is over.

2019 Course Route

The course this year has been slightly modified to help reduce confusion and make things as clear as possible for participants during the race! We heard your feedback and did our best to respond. This year there will be 4×1.25km laps instead of 5x1km laps. Our hope with this is that fewer people will lose count of what lap they are on, and will be able to get through the course with less confusion overall. Improvements are also in store for the “lanes” that you will run through at the completion of each lap. Donuts will now be offered after lap 2 (the halfway point).
