The Race

Do you love donuts? Well, why donut you join us at the Stan's Donut 5K & Kids Dash on Saturday, August 10, 2019. Enjoy donuts throughout the course and at the finish line.

Stan's Donuts


Stan’s is a story of tradition and reinvention. Stan Berman opened his eponymous donut shop in Los Angeles, California in 1963, continuing a generations-long family tradition of baking. His donuts quickly became legendary in the Los Angeles area.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, Rich Labriola followed a passion for all things bread to create one of the most renowned bakeries in the Chicagoland area from the ground up. After seeing Stan featured on a travel show, Rich reached out to Stan and the two became friends over their shared passion.

The friendship turned into a partnership as Stan passed the torch to Rich, who opened the first Stan’s Donuts & Coffee in Chicago in 2014 with his own recipes inspired by Stan Berman’s classics. Since then, Stan’s has grown to several shops in Chicago where it has become a hometown favorite.

  • Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Pinned in all four corners
  • Not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Refund Policy

Since Stan's Donuts 5K & Kids Dash has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
