(NECN/WTVD) - Here is a challenge for you: could you run two miles, eat a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts, and run another two miles? Well, that is what 5,000 people did on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina for the 5th annual Krispy Kreme Challenge. Maybe it is the fact that the real test of your athletic ability is to see whether you can run two miles from NC State's bell tower to Krispy Kreme Donuts in Raleigh, scarf down a dozen glazed donuts and run back without tossing your cookies Whatever the draw, its caught on and in five years it is now attracting ESPN and more than 5,000 people, all raising $35,000 for North Carolina's Childrens Hospital. Athletes do not take the challenge lightly. "Practing eating, practicing running for about 2 weeks eating my whole life," runner Chad Perry said. That is a lot of practice. But it is worth it in the end -- the winner takes home the golden donut medal and, as if they did not get enough, five dozen donuts to take home. WTVD's Amber Rupinta reports.
