The Donut Mile

  • Red Hook Track 158 Bay Street Brooklyn, NY, 11231 United States (map)

After last year's successful Taco Mile, we're changing up the cuisine for our Dine & Dash series. This time around it's donuts. The format remains the same:

Donut, 1/4 mile, Donut, 1/4 mile, Donut, 1/4 mile, Donut, 1/4 mile.

Runners take your marks. Get set. Eat!

Prizes to top Male & Female competitors. All profits to The Gweneviere Mann Foundation.

The Gweneviere Mann Foundation has been established to raise awareness and fund research for a cure of both meningioma and the exon 20 mutation lung cancer; 77% of people with this type of cancer are non-smokers. Gwen will be greatly missed for her singing, storytelling, unconditional love for others, and ability to bring humor and laughter to the everyday occurrences she found around her.
