Race Report: Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash 5K

Posted in Race Reports

The Daytona Beach Krispy Kreme Doughnut Dash took place at Tuscawilla Park on Sunday, October 1st. Competitors could run in teams of two, consuming a dozen doughnuts between them at the halfway point of the race. Individuals could also participate in the competitive class, eating a dozen doughtnuts halfway, or in the casual class, stopping halfway to have a doughnut or five or none before completing the distance. I won my entry to the race in a club raffle and elected for the casual class.

Training & Goals
I ate a dozen doughnuts mid-run for about a month prior to the race.

You know me... no particular goals. I just wanted to get a little run in and pick up a shirt and medal for my trouble. The doughnuts were a sweet, sweet bonus.

Race Day: October 1, 2017
Smooth sailing race morning. I arrived in time for one of the better parking spots and picked up my shirt & bib. It was about 79°F and overcast at the start with 84% humidity.

Mile 1: 11:49
The first loop in and around the park was on a mix of roadway, sidewalk, and dirt path.

Mile 2: 14:56
At about the halfway point, back near the starting line of the double-loop course, everyone stopped at the doughnut station for some serious nomming. I had two Krispy Kremes before heading back out with another one to go, along with a cup of water.

Mile ~3: 11:15*
The doughnuts settled nicely. I could have had a few more. Maybe the competitive team run could be a possibility. I don't know if I could do the full dozen; I don't like Krispy Kremes that much. Dunkin, on the other hand...

Recommendation
This silly race offered a nice course, fun t-shirt and cute finisher medal. Plus it was timed. And we got doughnuts. I'm not a big fan of eating contests but this was kind of fun. I'm glad I won the raffle.

Chip time: 37:52

Casual Runner category: 11th female runner out of 48; 18th overall out of 72 casual finishers
