Virtual Race Details

The 2020 Bull City Race Fest has gone Virtual!

The 2020 Bull City Race Fest is now virtual, which means that you will have all the benefits of cool convenience, brag-worthy swag and fun ways to support the Durham community while still staying safe and social distancing. We’re sure you’re going to have a blast!

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race means that you can run the 5 Mile or Half Marathon on your own time and wherever is convenient for you. Plus you’ll still receive cool swag and the bragging rights that come along with participating in Durham’s tastiest road race!

How does it work?

Register for the virtual 2020 Bull City Race Fest – no need to choose a distance when registering!  Attend the in-person packet pickup (details announced at a later date). Run anytime between October 18 and October 25 – that’s eight days of celebration for eight years in the Bull City! Upload your distance and time results on our website to see how you stack up to the competition.

Will there be a Packet Pick-Up?

Yes! Who says a virtual race has to be boring? Not us! We’ll host an in-person Packet Pick-Up on Saturday, November 7 where you can snag your swag and support the local Durham community – all while safely socially distancing of course!

Brag-Worthy Swag - It's all in the details!
