2/7 – Krispy Kreme ChallengeWho’s in?
The Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual,student-operated race in Raleigh, North Carolina benefiting the NC Children’s Hospital. Beginning in 2004 with a mere 12 participants,the race has grown exponentially to a whopping 3,000 runners in the 2008 race and has rapidly become one of NC State University’s newest traditions. Beginning at the NC State Belltower, each runner runs 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme store located on Peace St. in Raleigh. After downing a full dozen of the famous Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the runner must run the two miles back. All in one hour. The challenge attracts a wide range of runners from beginners to serious competitors hailing from all corners of the country. With an expected participation of 5,000 runners, we are expecting the 2009 race to be our greatest (and most beneficial) race yet.

Register online. Race starts at approximately 9am.

Options include:
CHALLENGER: $16.00 4 miles, 12 doughnuts, and a t-shirt.
CASUAL: $16.00 4 miles, some doughnuts, and a t-shirt.
SUPPORTER: $10.00 T-shirt only.

2/15 – St. Valentine’s Massacre Marathon Relay
Scott from Off N Running says that Country Park in Greensboro is reserved for this annual race (as are the much envied hoodies). We expect for information to be posted on the
Off N Running website soon.

This is a full marathon, run solo or in 2 or 4 person teams. Last year we had three four person teams and one single man team. We are hoping to have at least that many this year! No experience necessary to run in the event, just a sense of humor and a willingess to end up slightly cold and sore. If you are interested in learning more about this event,
visit this post from last March.

Already know that you want to be on a team? Email Stephanie R. your full name, contact information and age ASAP so that she can start working on the team line-up. (Check the roster for her email adddress.)

2/21 – Coach Bubba 4M & 20K
Carolina Godiva Track Club will present the fifth annual Coach Bubba 20 km and 4 Mile Road Races on Saturday, February 21, 2009. Register online at

From the website: Godiva Track Club established this event to honor Bruce Koenig, affectionately known as Coach Bubba, and his contributions to the running community. He was a founder of Godiva’s Marathon Training Program as well as its Running Start program for those just beginning to run.Since its inception, the race has benefited The American Heart Association, the Triangle Rails to Trails Conservancy, and the American Tobacco Trail. This year, the primary charitable beneficiary is Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers (TROSA), a treatment and rehabilitation program founded in Durham. We’re doing all that we can to make this a runner-friendly, memorable experience for all participants.
