Krispy Kreme Challenge
One of America’s most unique running events (and toughest eating events!), the Krispy Kreme Challenge requires competitors to run five miles, eat a dozen doughnuts at the halfway point and hit the finish line in under one hour. Started in 2004 with just a handful of North Carolina State University students, the annual event now draws nearly 8,000 runners decked out in costumes along with plenty of media attention. For the curious, those doughnuts total 2,400 calories and 144 grams of fat—but who’s counting! Saturday; 2011 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27607

First Fridays at the Museum: The African Queen (1951)
After her brother is killed by German soldiers in an east African colony in 1914, a missionary sister works to convince the captain of a run-down steamboat to help seek revenge for the British. The African Queen was chosen for the World War I Film Series, specifically, to help audiences understand the profound impact that WWI had on the African continent—in terms of the empire-building aspirations of England, France, and Germany and in terms of the native Africans who were “used” during the war as soldiers and as support for foreign armies. Most people probably do not realize that the war’s cost to Africans was very high: tens of thousands who served as front-line soldiers for France and England were killed, as well as hundreds of thousands of civilians who died in support of, or in crossfire between, armies fighting throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Actor Humphrey Bogart won his only Oscar for this portrayal opposite Katharine Hepburn. This is one in a monthly series of films meant to help interpret some of the scope and complexity of the Great War. Before the film begins, enjoy some So Good Pupusas Salvadoran food truck and free samples of local microbrews while they last. Lobby-level exhibits are open all evening; the Museum Shop is open until 8 p.m Free; Friday, 6-9 pm; 5 E Edenton St, Raleigh, NC 27601-1011; 919.807.7900
