Foot-Longs Ago In A Bar Not So Far Away...

The DOUGHMAN was born one night over beers at Dain's Place and conversation about the Krispy Kreme Challenge. Four Duke-affiliated graduate students and coaches were inspired by the creative challenge set-forth by the Krispy Kreme Challenge and before they knew it -- gastronomic-athletics would be changed forever. The DOUGHMAN was born. An event combining food and sport all for a great local non-profit that would give the transplanted Durham-ites an opportunity to showcase the gems scattered throughout their home town was too good to pass up.

Our partner restaurants demonstrate a commitment to the slow foods movement, and we at the DOUGHMAN eat local every chance we get. Local farms, local brews, local foods, local life -- that's what we strive for and that's what is central to the DOUGHMAN ethos.
