So this story is true to the letter. I joked to my friend showing him a video of Toughest asking him if he’d like to join me. He laughed and said “I’d do it if it was 5k and you had to eat a doughnut every kilometer.” I made my other friend confirm witness to that statement before pulling up the Doughnut Dash webpage… “Gotcha!”
I think having done so many races this year the Doughnut Dash 5k race didn’t really give something to shout about. Having said that a lot of people looked like they were having a great time. My friend I ran with already said that he wants to do it again next year and take his daughter along for the kids race.
Ironically the Doughnut Dash’s official charity is Kidney Research UK.
Whilst the actual event cost is very good at £16.00, my train ride to Colchester came up to £27.00. So putting that into consideration it’s quite a pricey long trip for me to do a 5k event, even if food is included.
My general gripes I guess are personal and I think a lot of people will enjoy this sugary pursuit, especially with a big group of friends.
