The Hot Now light is on for the Tuscaloosa Krispy Kreme Challenge on Saturday.

The 5th annual race to benefit kids in need through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of West Alabama will start on 6th Street at the Government Plaza with a unique twist.  Participants of the race will begin at the Start line, run one mile, pick up one dozen doughnuts, eat the doughnuts and run one mile back to the finish line.

You can take the race seriously and run for prize money, form a team if you'd like and race with your friends, or be casual and enjoy the day, the course and the doughnuts.  There are also prizes for best team name, best costumes, and team place finishers.
