A gratuitous plug for a very different running race being staged during the first weekend of the Olympic Games......

It's a 5km track race where runners complete eight laps of the track, and then have to eat three doughnuts, before heading on for eight more laps and the finish line.

All in aid of the Hampshire Autistic Society, which being held on Sunday, July 29th at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth.

Bet this is one race you've never tried before! Makes for an interesting risk assessment!

There's that race in America where you nee to eat something like a dozen krispey kremes.

Technicqie is to squash them all together - then throw up at the finish.

Camillia - the race is based on the Krispy Kreme Challenge in North Carolina, but I reckoned eating a dozen Krispy Kremes midway through a race was just gross! So three at the 3km point is a little more moderate!

Nice idea about the squashing doughnut technique, but have you seen how big those Krispy Kreme monsters are? Now that is messy!!!!

My other half (Cake - the names says it all really) could do it - that's his standard race nutrition. Shame it's too far away! Good luck though - I hope lots of people enter

Just to flag up that anyone  who fancies taking part in the Doughnut Dash can enter on the day. The glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts have been ordered and we're ready to go for the 5km race. Registration at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth is from 10am and the cost is a tenner which all goes to an autism charity.
