The Donut Dash is a family-friendly 5K run/walk benefitting the Wisconsin Riders of the Police Unity Tour to assist in reaching our fundraising goals. All proceeds benefit the Wisconsin Riders, the Police Unity Tour, and the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial. 5K runners will be chip timed and receive a time deduction of two (2) minutes per donut eaten taken off of their finish time. Awards will be given based on finish time which includes donut reduced time. Kids can participate in the 5K, but they must be accompanied by an adult and the full registration price must be paid. There will be a FREE Kids Fun Run following the 5K. This is an untimed quarter mile run for kids. Registrants will have the option of purchasing a kids event t-shirt for $10 at the time of registration. Shirts are not guaranteed after April 15th. Online registration closes April 14th at midnight.
Do I have to eat donuts? No, but why wouldn’t you? They’re delicious and you earn a two-minute time reduction for each one you eat.
Are shirts guaranteed? Yes and no. If you register prior to 4/1 you’re guaranteed a shirt. After that, they are not guaranteed.
How many people can be on a team? Teams must be 4 members. There is a setup fee to create the team and then each additional member can join for free with a password set by the team administrator.
What if I have more than 4 people on a team? Divide your runners-up and register more than one team. Team finish times are figured by averaging the 4 runners finish times which includes the donut reduced times.
Are there awards for the 5K? Yes. There will be awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of the following age groups: 5-8, 9-12, 13-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+ and the team division.

Can my child run the 5K with me? Yes. You must accompany them on the 5K, they must be registered and the full registration price must be paid.
