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 nonprofit that would give the transplanted Durhamites 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.
