Krispy Kreme Challenge

Added on by Carolyn Van Houten.

The Krispy Kreme Challenge's mantra is "2400 calories, 12 doughnuts, 5 miles, 1 hour."  Each of the 8,000 racers were expected to eat a dozen donuts halfway through the 5 mile race that benefits the North Carolina Children's Hospital as well as several other charities.  It was a crazy whirlwind to photograph, but here are a few of my favorite moments from the hour!
