After careful consideration, polling our Facebook fans, and talking to our friends at the Edmond Parks Department, we have decided to postpone the event by one week. The Donut Run will now be taking place on March 15th.
Forecasts have shown there is a high likelihood of freezing rain, temperatures ranging between 30-34 degrees, and a windchill of 28. Do to the unique nature of the event, we feel that these conditions will create issues with the event making it difficult for participants to enjoy. We want all of our runners to feel comfortable at the Donut Run, and as such, we apologize for any inconvenience this rescheduling may have caused.
We look forward to seeing you on March 15th!
Same time, Same place!
Donut Run Participants,
We have had inspected the course for the Donut Run and currently there is light icing and puddles forming. In addition, some roadways are icy. Based on temperatures for tonight we expect the conditions to worsen. Currently, many other events are canceling throughout the community. Based on the current circumstances as well as requirements for ordering fresh donuts we are postponing the event. We will be sending out a questionaire for participants with suggestions on dates. We are currently leaning to an Early Spring date. All signed up participants will be transferred to that event. In the event that any participants cannot participate on that date, we will also allow then you to transfer to another Donut Run event.
We are sorry for any inconvenience and are most concerned with the safety of our runners and staff,

We have had a few questions about the Donut Finishers Medals and have had to make some adjustments in the process to make sure we are unaffected by weather.
- The Finisher Medal is available only to participants doing the 5k distance and eating donuts.
- We will fire the gun, at that time everyone will be able to open their box of donuts.
- The clock will start when the gun fires. Your time to eat the donuts is counted as part of your time to finish
- Participants will be given nothing additional but the box of donuts at the start line.
- Participants will be required to eat all donuts before crossing the starting line.
- Participants whom are unable to finish their donuts will have to wait until 10:00 minutes total has elapsed.
- Teams will receive finisher medals based on individual times, however they will be put into the team awards based on combined times.
- Individuals finishing with a time of 35 minutes or less including eating of the donuts will get the finisher medal.
We will remove the finish line medals from the finish line area at precisely 35:01. Anyone finishing at that time or later will not receive a finisher medal. We ask that all participants respect this rule and challenge themselves to finish in the allotted time.
We look forward to seeing everyone out at the event. We understand these are slight adjustments but want to make sure that the event is fair and fun for all.
