The Great Donut Dash

Do you love running or walking? Do you love donuts? Do you LOVE Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts??? Well this is the event for you!

This event will involve a 3-Mile Run/Walk on the Suffield High School campus and track. There will be three stops along the course, and you will have to eat a donut at each stop before you can continue on! These are some of the most delicious donuts around! With that being said, they only offer gluten filled donuts so unfortunately we cannot accommodate gluten allergies. There will be an option at registration to participate without eating – however, those who do not eat are not eligible for awards at the end of the race. There will also be a kids run between the two heats of the 3-mile race where the kids will have three stops and will have to eat a few munchkins at each stop.

All net proceeds from this race will be donated to Relay for Life Meriden-Wallingford. If you are unfamiliar with this organization, please visit their website and read up. They are a phenomenal organization that do great, great work in the strides against cancer.

WHEN: 3-Mile run: 5/10/20 at 8:00AM or 9:45AM. Kids (9 years old and under) 3/4 mile run at 9:25AM. No on-site registration. Online registration open through May 3rd (closes early to notify donut shop to number of donuts required)

COST: 3 Mile Run: $30 (website transaction fee) for online registration through April 1st , $35 (website transaction fee) from April 2nd to close of registration. $5 cheaper for those who do not want to participate in the eating challenge. Kids 3/4 mile (9 years old and under) $12 (+website transaction fee).
