Krispy Kreme Challenge
The one-of-a-kind Triangle race is probably something you’ve never heard of before. Participants run 2.5 miles through Raleigh to the local Krispy Kreme where they eat a full dozen glazed donuts. The real challenge? They then have to run 2.5 miles back to the start line to finish the race all in under one hour! If you’re up for it, the Krispy Kreme Challenge is a beloved Triangle event known as the number one tradition to complete before graduating from North Carolina State University.
Other Local Happenings
If you’re a basketball fan, you get your pick between two of the country’s top college basketball programs: Duke University and the University of North Carolina.
