Information


The 8th Annual Matt Gfeller Memorial Doughnut Run is a lighthearted 5K run or walk for the entire community. Join us to help reach three goals:

  • 1. Remember Matt
  • Fifteen-year-old Matt was a competitive athlete, talented performer and connoisseur of tasty food. To honor Matt, his three best friends (John Lineberger, Camden Francis and Thomas Keshian) decided on this crazy event involving running, live music and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Matt’s schools – Reynolds High, Summit School and Whitaker Elementary – each play a role. Matt had a big, fun personality and he would have loved all this!

  • 2. Raise Money for Traumatic Brain Injury Research
  • Thanks to the generous corporate sponsors who pay the race costs, all entry fees will go to the Matthew Gfeller Foundation to support brain trauma research at the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the Matthew Gfeller Sports Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.

  • 3. Bring our community together
  • This is a 5K for all ages and abilities – from competitive runners to neighborhood walkers. Reynolds students provide music along the beautiful course, and Summit students staff the half-way point (Whitaker Elementary School), where Krispy Kreme doughnuts and water are set up. There are two participant categories: Dough Runners must eat a half-dozen doughnuts at the half-way point; No Dough runners or walkers can eat less or none or all – your choice. It is lots of fun and there are refreshments at Reynolds after the race. Awards for Top 3 men and women by age group for both Dough and No Dough Runners.

Timing/Awards

This event will be timed using a bibtag timing chips. The timing chip will be on the back of the run number. This will not need to be turned back in after the race – it is disposable. It will be a chip time start. That means your time will not start until you reach the start timing mat. Make sure your number is clearly visible on the front of your body. Chip Time is the time your chip crossed the start timing mat. The awards for this event are based on Chip Time.

Top 3 in each of the following categories:

  • Top 3 M/F Dough
  • Top 3 M/F No Dough
  • Top 3 M/F (Dough and No Dough) 14 & Under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
  • Youngest Dough Runner
  • Oldest Dough Runner
