Event Overview

Over 2,400 registered for the 2019 Donut 5K shattering the previous record. The "sweetest 5K in Indiana" is back at the Carmel Racquet Club on Carmel Drive for 2020. Enjoy the warmth as we take over tennis courts in the INDOOR building to stay warm with plenty of room for all. The event will again benefit our furry friends waiting for a forever home and a few local animal rescues will be onsite on race day.
