Keep ’em down
8:30 a.m. Saturday; NCSU Belltower, Hillsborough Street, Raleigh; $50; krispykremechallenge.com
Time again for the Krispy Kreme Challenge, in which runners dash from the NCSU Belltower to Krispy Kreme, down a dozen doughnuts and then run back – hopefully without barfing. The 5-mile run and carb ingestion must take place in one hour. This act of masochism benefits the N.C. Children’s Hospital. There’s a casual category for the weak of stomach. Or you can just watch and cheer.
