What if I am missing one passport code because a shop was closed?
Passports must be fully completed to be eligible for the T-shirt prize (Oxford Doughnut Shoppe is optional). Each donut shop has varying hours and open days.

Why do some donut shops sell out so early?
Creating and crafting donuts is complex and takes some time. A typical batch of yeast glazed donuts can take 4-5 hours to make. The donut shops are working hard to keep up with the demand of the trail, and appreciate your understanding. Feel free to call to call ahead to verify a shop is open.
