Donut Dash

Not scheduled for 2021


Do you like to run? Do you love donuts? (Duh, who doesn’t?) Want to support making your community a better place? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are ready to enter the Donut Dash 5K. We’re challenging you to a unique biathlon that raises your heart rate and your blood sugar for a good cause. And costumes of all types are encouraged! 

Combined with Memory Grove Discovery Day’s FREE activities for kids, it’s an event that the whole family can enjoy. So it’s time to channel your inner Homer Simpson and tell him that signing up for the Donut Dash is the perfect way to get the donuts you crave while working them off at the same time running in one of the city’s most picturesque areas, City Creek Canyon.
