2019 Defiance Donut Dash 5k Fun Run & 1 Mile Walk




Holey Toledough! We are SO excited about this year’s 5k fun run and 1 mile walk on August 3, 2019! Yes, you read that correctly; it is a donut dash!  And they aren’t just any donuts!  They are the amazingly wonderful donuts from Holey Toledough Handcrafted Doughnuts. Each participant will receive a t-shirt and a gourmet doughnut. Don’t worry – they will be worth the run!

Join us for a 5K fun run from the airport runway to Oxbow Lake and back or the 1 mile walk around the airport runway. Hot air balloons will be flying in as you check-in around 7 AM (weather dependent).

Recharge after your run with a cup of coffee, a doughnut or pancakes at the Biggby Best Pancake Breakfast (free-will donation).

The 5K is a trail run, so dress appropriately. Part of the path is rugged and may be muddy. The 1 mile walk is around the airport runway on concrete. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. There will be a restroom available before the race and at the turn-around. There will be water at the turn around and the end of the race.

Non pre-registered walkers and runners will be charged parking admission which is $10 per car in addition to the activity fee (below) and you can enjoy the balloons (weather dependent), pancake breakfast and inflatables. You can also pick up a free PM parking pass from the United Way tent if morning admission is paid.

Cost to participate in walk/run:
Adults and Children (Ages 12 & older) – $25 per person
Young Children (Ages 3-11) – $15 per person
Ages 2 & Under free

Shirts not guaranteed after July 15th!
