Runner In Krispy Kreme Challenge Dies

I mean no disrespect to the man who had the heart attack, but the layers of irony in this story about the Krispy Kreme Challenge are almost beyond belief. The runners have to eat a dozen donuts in the middle of the race, which raises funds for a hospital.

It feels like a parody from the Onion, except it’s real and the man actually died.

Some of the thousands of runners head down N. Person St. after picking up their doughnuts during the 12th annual Krispy Kreme Challenge race in Raleigh on Saturday.
