Anyone can do a 5K, but can you do a 5K while eating donuts? This race will test your running abilites as well as your capability to consume donuts. There will be three donut stations along the route where runners will be given a chance to eat one donut at each one. For each donut eaten there will be one minute deducted from the runner's overall time. Runners will have to decide if eating the delicious donut is worth the time deduction. Eating donuts is not mandatory, but could be motivation to finish the race. The race will start and end next to the Collisville Police Department. Costumes and donut eating are encouraged, but are not mandatory.
