Krispy Kreme Glaze Kraze 6K to be hosted by JOSC
The Jacksonville-Onslow Sports Commission has been working with the BRAND NEW Krispy Kreme located off of Western Boulevard for a few months to bring the Krispy Kreme Glaze Kraze 6K to Jacksonville, NC. The event will be held on Saturday, May 2nd at 9 AM at the Jacksonville High School Track. The race is based off the popular Krispy Kreme Challenge that was started by NC State University students seven years ago. While the races have expended to other collegiate markets, the JOSC wanted to bring the event to the Marine Corps. “We figured that a lot of the demographics are the same between the Marine Corps and colleges. Why wouldn’t it succeed here?” said Executive Director of the Jacksonville-Onslow Sports Commission, Ashleigh Bachert.
There are two ways to partake in the event. Challengers will be required to eat all dozen doughnuts and complete the 6K run in under an hour, while Participants don’t have to eat any doughnuts at all and can take their time completing the route. After the event is complete, the Top 3 finishers in the Challengers category will receive a medal and we will also crown the Top 3 Best Dressed in the Costume Contest. Everyone who registers will receive a drawstring bag, a technical running shirt and a dozen doughnuts.
The JOSC is excited about hosting this event and bringing it to Onslow County. Not only is it a family friendly event, but it also helps raise funds for the Sports Commission which is a 501-c3 public charity. All funds that are raised will be put into our Event Support budget which allows us to continue to help events grow or helps us attract new events to the area.
