In celebration of Harold’s National Doughnut Day, the downtown bakery worked with Off Track Events to host its first-ever 5K race beginning in Flat Branch Park on Saturday. Freshly made doughnuts from Harold’s and coffee brewed by Fretboard Coffee were provided for all participants upon reaching the finish line. As part of the event, a portion of the proceeds raised at the event are to benefit the Central Missouri Humane Society.
