What is the Tuscaloosa Krispy Kreme Challenge?

The Tuscaloosa Krispy Kreme Challenge was first held in February 2013 right off of Paul Bryant Drive near the University of Alabama campus. It was modeled after the original race in Raleigh, North Carolina on the campus of North Carolina State University.  Find out more about their race and their charity, Children’s Hospital, here:  http://www.krispykremechallenge.com

What begins as a normal race, the Tuscaloosa Krispy Kreme Challenge, has an unusual twist.  Participants of the race will begin at the Start line, run one mile, pick up one dozen doughnuts, eat the doughnuts and run one mile back to the finish line.

This year, we had to make some changes due to COVID-19. But the need for Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Alabama continues. So this year will be the sweetest race that we didn’t run in 2021, and we will continue fundraising efforts for the children in our community. We hope you will support us, even though the virus has changed our race for this year.
