Don’t miss the 3rd Annual Quintiles Bull City Race Fest and Food Truck Rodeo showcasing historic, downtown Durham on October 18th. This festival has something for the fastest runners and families alike. Choose from half-marathon, five-mile and one-mile distances and enjoy a fall morning of running and post-race food. The Quintiles Bull City Race Fest is the culmination of a world-class running experience and a world-class eating experience, all in a world-class city.

The weekend kicks off with the expo and packet pick-up in downtown Durham, followed by a Carb Crawl, with local restaurants showcasing why Durham is foodie heaven.

With differing distances on race day, you are welcome to race, go for distance, or run with family and friends. Each distance has something unique to offer. The half-marathon showcases downtown, Trinity Park and Duke’s campus. All races start next to the American Tobacco Campus with a post-race festival on the lawn at the Durham Performing Arts Center. There will be food trucks, a beer garden, a kids’ zone and entertainment.

We are pleased to announce Habitat for Humanity of Durham as the Official Charitable Beneficiary of this landmark running and food event. The partnership enables our two organizations to continue our commitment of creating positive economic and social impact for the Durham community by setting a goal to raise $150,000 a year for the next five years, which will fund the building of two Habitat houses per year.  Fundraising will be done through peer-to-peer campaigns and online contributions at when runners register for the event.
