DONUT DASH FAQ's

SO WHAT IS THE DONUT DASH?

The Donut Dash is Heartline’s annual 5k walk/run fundraiser event that has grown to become one of the largest 5k races in Kosciusko county.

Along with raising funds to support Heartline’s mission to encourage, equip, and empower women and families in our community, this event is an opportunity for families, friends, and neighbors to come together, eat some donuts, and get a little exercise!

A bonus? Lots of opportunities for prizes through fundraising, donut eating, and pre-registering for the race!

HOW DOES THE FUNDRAISER WORK?

Racers are encouraged to establish a fundraising account when registering for the race at RunSignUp.  Donors can then donate to your fundraising account online by searching for your name. You can also download a fundraiser form above to complete and bring collected donations (cash/checks) on race day.

Racers will earn prizes based on the amount they raise – there will be prizes at the $100, $250, $500, and $1000+ levels. There will also be a TOP FUNDRAISER prize!

But of course, the biggest prize is knowing you’re MAKING A DIFFERENCE! 🙂

All proceeds will go to support Heartline’s ministry.

DO I GET A SHIRT? A MEDAL?

Regarding shirts: YES! Every participant will leave with a shirt. Those registering by 10/1 are guaranteed this year’s shirt in their size; those registering after that deadline may receive a previous year’s shirt.

Regarding medals: The top 3 finishers for both males and females in every age division (children through seniors) will receive official Donut Dash medals – just be sure to stick around for the awards after the race so you can take yours home with you!

Overall top finishers will also receive a custom plaque.

 

SO WHAT'S WITH THE DONUTS?

It’s a DONUT DASH, so of course there will be donuts – LOTS of them. To be a DONUT finisher, racers must eat 3 donuts (or donut holes for kiddos) along the race – one at each mile marker.

Those who succeed will be entered into the special DONUT DASHER prize drawing – think goodies, gift cards, and more!

And yes, a small selection of GLUTEN FREE donuts will be available for those with gluten allergies.

 

ARE STROLLERS ALLOWED? WHAT ABOUT DOGS?

YES and YES – strollers (and families with littles) are welcome! Dogs are also welcome to join, as long as they are leashed and picked up after.

Please take care to only bring dogs you know are friendly and comfortable in crowds of people.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT?

The Donut Dash is a RAIN OR SHINE event – so unless the county has issued severe weather warnings, we’ll be ready to run!

We’ve had successful races in the rain before, sometimes it makes it even more fun – just bring your poncho or umbrella!

CAN I REGISTER AT THE EVENT?

YES, you are welcome to sign up the morning of the event. To do so, please arrive by 9:00 to allow time for registration & data input.

Also, please remember that if you register the day of the event, you may receive a t-shirt from a previous year.

ONLY PARTICIPANTS WHO PRE-REGISTERED WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE GENERAL DOOR PRIZE DRAWING.
