RALEIGH (WTVD) -- There are only a few races around the country like this, and on February 4 the Krispy Kreme Challenge returns to Raleigh. The annual race is a fundraiser for the North Carolina Children's Hospital at UNC.
Runners start at the Bell Tower at NC State and run 2.5 miles to the Krispy Kreme on Peace Street, eat a dozen glazed doughnuts, then run the 2.5 miles back to the Bell Tower.
The race started in 2004 as a dare among a small group of NC State students and it's grown to nearly 10,000 people since then.
