St. Mary’s & Johnson…just before the hill climb on St. Mary’s this morning.
About the KKC: The Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual, student-operated race in Raleigh, North Carolina benefiting the NC Children’s Hospital. Beginning in 2004 with a mere 12 participants, the race has grown exponentially to a whopping 3,000 runners in the 2008 race and has rapidly become one of NC State University’s newest traditions.
Beginning at the NC State Belltower, each runner runs 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme store located on Peace St. in Raleigh. After downing a full dozen of the famous Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the runner must run the two miles back. All in one hour.
The challenge attracts a wide range of runners from beginners to serious competitors hailing from all corners of the country.
