Wally Irvin Survives Krispy Kreme Challenge

Wally Irvin - Krispy Kreme Challenge

 

Over the years, LT has set the pace, so to speak, for marathoners, half-marathoners, and triathletes. For example, in October, 12 intrepid LT runners ran as “LT United” in the Tennessee Ragnar Relays, covering nearly 200 miles from Chattanooga to Nashville.

On Saturday, November 21, Wally Irvin survived on of the most challenging endurance events of them all, the 7th Annual Krispy Kreme Challenge in Huntsville, Alabama.

Krispy Kreme Challenge is a sort of nutritional triathlon. Contestants run two miles from the start line in downtown Huntsville to a donut shop where they must eat one dozen donuts, and then run two miles back to the finish line.

Wally was up to the task. He ran four miles, consumed 12 donuts, 2,400 calories, and over 100 grams of fat in 36 minutes, placing seventh out of 250 runners/eaters.

We congratulate Wally on climbing the Mt. Everest of donut-devouring-foot-racing events!
