The 2021 Krispy Kreme Challenge has been moved to a virtual event in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This decision was made to keep our participants and the greater community as safe as possible. To create greater availability, we have opened the race from February 6th, 2021 to February 13th, 2021. Runners will be able to choose a convenient time at any point during the racing period to complete the race. In the registration package, runners will receive a custom 2021 Krispy Kreme Challenge Race Day shirt and a voucher for one dozen doughnuts to be redeemed at any Krispy Kreme location in the country. 

DISCLAIMER: Due to the processing and shipping time needed for our Doughnut Vouchers, not all participants will receive their Race Packet before the end of the racing period. Registrations that are submitted after 1/18/2021 may receive their race packet, consisting of a t-shirt and a doughnut voucher, after February 13th, 2021. Participants will still be permitted to run 5 miles, redeem their doughnuts, etc. but will not be able to upload their times, etc. This will not affect your participation status in the race. 

DISCLAIMER: Due to the processing time needed to prepare our Race T-shirts, registrants submitted after 1/6/2021 may not receive the size that they indicated on their registration forms. If this occurs, a member of our team will contact you at the email listed on your form. We will provide you with the option of requesting a different size 2021 Race T-shirt or the correct size shirt from a previous race year.
