9th Annual Donut Dash 5k & Mini-Donut 1/2 Mile for Kids

Your favorite things all in one place: running and donuts. Whether you are a runner, a walker, or a donut enthusiast, this is the event for you! 

We moved our race last year, introducing a 5K course in Minnetonka, leaving and finishing at Eagle Ridge Academy. (VIEW RACE MAP HERE.) This route is an accurately measured 5K course, is chip- and mat-timed, and takes you on a picturesque run or walk just north of Bren Road. There will be Zumba warm-ups provided before the race, complimentary chair massages, rock tape applications, music, great food, and fun youth activities. Fun for all ages!

The Mini-Donut 1/2 Mile is for kids ages 10 and under.

Each race registrant receives a tech shirt and post-race refreshment, and DONUTS! Due to possible supply chain delays, we will place our shirt order in on April 14 to ensure timely delivery.  delivery of shirts. While we will order extras, please be sure to register no later than April 13 to ensure a shirt in your preferred size.
