30th Annual Tour de Donut

Registration starts at 7:00 am - Race Starts at 9:00 am

Staunton's 30th Tour De Donut is Saturday, July 14th, 2018. Event starts at 9:00 am at Staunton City Park. Information and Online Registration are available at

The Tour de Donut bicycle race is the original spoof of the "Tour de France." The "race" starts with a mass start and is led/paced to the boundary of Staunton, IL by the Staunton Police. The route has varied slightly from year-to-year due to road conditions/construction and is over rolling terrain with two donut stops. Riders must stop at the checkpoint stations (donut stops). Donut consumption is not mandatory, however, a five minute bonus is awarded for each donut consumed and recorded. After the race placement awards are presented by category for best 'Elapsed Time', 'Adjusted Time' and 'Most Donuts Eaten'. Door/Attendance prizes and grand prizes are also awarded.

The 3rd Annual Tour de Donut Hole will again be between 12 and 15 miles depending on the final route, with one donut stop.

It will be a family friendly fun ride with T-shirts and donuts. Visit for information and registration.
