Event Overview

Over 1,900 registered for the 2017 Donut 5K shattering the previous record. The Sweetest 5K in Indiana is back at the Carmel Racquet Club on Carmel Drive for 2018. Enjoy the warmth as we take over SIX tennis courts in the indoor building with plenty of room for all. As always, the event will again benefit our furry friends as a few local animal rescue shelters will be chosen. Thanks to our continued partnership with Jack's Donuts Carmel, donuts will be offered at every water stop AND at the finish line (over 7,500 served in 2017).
