Featured Event of the Month
As a former cross-country runner, I’ve heard a lot of people say, “That’s not for me – I only run if I’m being chased”…Well, the Bull City Race Fest might change their opinion, or at least alter it to, “I only run if there’s food trucks at the finish line.”
The 4th Annual Quintiles Bull City Race Fest is a half marathon, five mile run, and one miler that takes place through the beautiful Bull City on October 16, 2016, but more importantly for foodies, it culminates in a food truck rodeo at the end! Runners receive a special discount at each food truck in attendance. Belgian Waffle Crafters, Cousins Maine Lobster, and Baozi Food Truck are just a few that will be in the 2016 line-up.
With three distances to choose from, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a serious athlete, if running is a healthy hobby, or if you just want to enjoy a fun run to burn off some of the calories you’re sure to regain later that day. All races start and end next to the American Tobacco Campus and Diamond View Park (Durham Performing Art’s lawn). In addition to food trucks, there will be a complimentary beer garden, kids’ zone activities and entertainment. There will even be entertainment along the way, as five or more bands play along the run course.
Kick off the weekend with a Carb Crawl in downtown Durham – stopping in local restaurants to experience some of the best food in the South and gain energy for the next day. After you pick up your registration packet the day before, show your race bib to participating restaurants to receive 10-15% off your meal!
Plus, there’s even more incentive to run when you know you’re helping support a good cause: Habitat for Humanity of Durham is the Official Charitable Beneficiary of the event. Fundraising is done through peer-to-peer campaigns and online contributions at www.sportoften.com when runners register for the event.
You’ll want to register early, as the price continues to increase closer to the date. Bites of Bull City has a registration code that will save you $5 using code bitesofbullcity5
There’s no other race where you’ll be running towards such a delicious finish line!
