5th Annual Tour de Donut Registration is Open!

Currently 500 participants from 14 states and Canada registered!

The 5th annual Tour de Donut will take place September 10, 2011 at Brumbaugh’s fruit farm in Arcanum Ohio.

The Tour de Donut is a unique bicycle event, where your ability to eat donuts is just as important as your ability to ride your bicycle. The event is a timed bicycle "race" where riders visit two "donut stops" during the 30 mile course and eat donuts. For each donut the rider eats during the ride (and keeps down) they have 5 minutes deducted from their ride time.

New this year will be a shorter ride “the Donut mini” with one donut stop in 15 miles. The mini will offer its own awards just like the longer distance while offering an alternative to those who are concerned about the full route.

Prizes are awarded in age group classes including the coveted golden Tour de Donut championship belts for the best adjusted "donut time" , most donuts eaten and fastest bike only time.

You do not have to be an experiences cyclist to take part in this event. While the event is technically a "race" very few consider it a serious competition, remember this is all in fun! Anyone on a bicycle is welcome.

Online and Mail-in registration will remain open until the 1000 rider limit is reached or September 3. There is no day of registration.

The unique event has grown rapidly to one of the largest events in the Midwest, last year nearly 700 participants from 14 states took part and is expected to exceed 1000 in 2011.
Last year over 250 dozen donuts were eaten.
