The San Luis Obispo Tour de Donut was started 6 years ago by a group of roommates and Cal Poly SLO runners looking for another form of intense competition off the track. Similar events are held across the country, but the SLO Tour de Donut takes on a unique race format and includes the quintessential San Luis Obispo cycling climb: Prefumo Canyon Road.

The Tour has grown in size and scale over the years, but our core goals have stayed the same: to raise money for the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County and have fun in the process.
