The Donutology Dash is Kansas City’s premier donut run party and one of the craziest events you have ever entered. This event is the great equalizer between big eater and fast runner. Everyone has a chance to win here! Let’s check out some sweet examples: The Mouthwatering Mile: Take off as fast as you want or hang back at the starting gun and devour an entire Donutology glazed for a 2-minute deduction (only 1 donut allowed per station) from your overall time. Show one of the judges you have eaten completely, get a stamp on your bib, and then head out. At the 1/2-mile turn is another chance at a 2-minute deduction by downing another Donutology glazed. Show the judge, get a stamp, and make your way to the finish. To clarify: Runner 1 runs, eats nothing, and runs a 6:30 mile. A 6:30 mile is his or her time. Runner 2 runs, eats 2, runs a 10:00 mile, but nets a 6:00 mile for the donut deductions. Runner 2 is your winner in this scenario. A Sweet 3 Miles: Same over all concept as the Mouthwatering Mile, except everyone takes off at the same time without a starting line donut and make their way to 5 stations on the course with 4-minute deductions per station. Judge must see and stamp. That equates to 20 minutes of potential time deduction on the course with 5 eaten (maximum). Runner 1 clips off a 21-minute 3-mile race and eats nothing; runner 2 jogs a 40 and nets a 20-minute event. We have a virtual also. That means you run 3 miles anywhere in the world, take a picture with a donut in your mouth, and we will mail you a shirt and finisher award. (Nothing beats a Donutology glazed). Net proceeds benefit the KU Medical Center. All finishers will receive a special edition Donutology shirt, finisher award, and donuts!
