This morning saw the 2010 running of the annual Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh NC. For those unfamiliar with it, this race involves running 2 miles to a Krispy Kreme doughnut store, eating 12 doughnuts as fast as possible, then running the two miles back to the starting line. According to the Krispy Kreme Challenge race website, they expected 6000 runners to participate in the challenge this year! Below is a video that was posted by Rob B. at Happy Moose Videos, who is a fellow dailymiler and member of BrooksID who ran the race and lived to document it on video. Hope you enjoy it!
