This year's Donut Dash 5K will take place in beautiful and historic Downtown Winter Garden. Run or walk through the timeless neighborhoods and down by Lake Apopka!

OK, so where else can you not feel guilty about eating as many donuts as you want!?!!

Join us for this great event and support the Winter Garden Police Athletic League. The Police Athletic League provides a free 8 week summer camp for 140 underprivileged and at-risk kids. Additionally the PAL provides a Holiday Gift’s for Kids Program which supplies holiday gifts and meal vouchers to approximately 400 local in-need children who would most likely go without during the holiday season.


Here is how it works...You can run this just like a regular 5k or you can...

Every donut eaten in one of the three “donut zones” will take 30 seconds off of your final run time. Example; eat 4 donuts and a total of 2 minutes will be taken off of your final run time. Anyone who eats 12 or more donuts will receive an additional bonus of 1 minute per donut (over 12) taken off their final run time.

“Donut zones” will be located at the 1 mile mark, 2 mile mark, and 3 mile mark of the course. All donuts must be finished in the “donut zones”.

Each adult entry comes with 1 free child’s entry into the kid’s mini-donut fun-run (if you have more than 1 child they can take part also at no additional cost, after all it is just plain fun). The mini donut fun run is a 1/2 mile run (or as far as they can go) where kids (5-10 years old) can also run and eat a donut. Kids taking part in the fun run will not receive tee shirts.

LIVE MUSIC, Sponsor tents, and Giveaways!!

All registered participants will receive a race medal. All finishers as listed below will receive an additional medal:

Medals will be provided to first and second place finishers (male and female) in all age categories. And 1st, 2nd, 3rd place male and female overall.
