9th Annual Donut Dash 5K and 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 are excited to be back in person for the 8th annual Donut  Dash 5K and Mini-Donut Dash 1/2 Mile for Kids! We are pleased to announce a new 5K course in Minnetonka, leaving and finishing at Eagle Ridge Academy. (VIEW RACE MAP HERE.) This new 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, 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 put our shirt order in on April 8 to ensure delivery of shirts.  While we will order extras, please be sure to register no later than April 7 to ensure a shirt and one in your preferred size.

Never done a 5K? There are apps out there to help you work your way up to a 5K: Endomondo, Runkeeper, Runtastic, Nike+ Run Club, Map My Run, Zombies, Run!
