The organizers said the participants in Saturday's race ran from the North Carolina State Bell Tower in Raleigh to the Krispy Kreme store 2 1/2 miles away and attempted to down a dozen doughnuts before running back to the bell tower, the North Carolina State University Technician Online reported Monday.
The participants raised more than $120,000 for the North Carolina Children's Hospital.
Police said there were no major incidents reported during the race, but there were some expected problems, such as participants vomited while attempting to run on a full stomach.
