2,400 calories, 12 doughnuts, five miles, one hour. The mantra of the Krispy Kreme Challenge epitomizes the test of physical fitness and gastrointestinal fortitude. What started as a challenge among 10 friends has transformed into a nationally publicized charity race, and the number one tradition to complete before graduating from North Carolina State University (NCSU). All proceeds are donated to the N.C. Children's Hospital.

Participants begin the Challenge at the Memorial Belltower on the campus of NCSU in Raleigh. Runners then travel 2.5 miles through historic downtown Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme located at the intersection of Peace and Person Streets where they attempt to consume one dozen original glazed doughnuts. The hardest part of the Challenge awaits as they run 2.5 miles back to the Memorial Belltower. This is the Krispy Kreme Challenge!
