Endurance Magazine, LLC is pleased to announce Habitat for Humanity of Durham as the Official Charitable Beneficiary of its landmark running and food event, the Quintiles Bull City Race Fest & Food Truck Rodeo, which will take place in Durham October 16, 2016. The Quintiles Bull City Race Fest & Food Truck Rodeo became the largest race in Durham’s history when more than 5,900 people participated in the inaugural event, which showcased Durham as a world-class destination for runners and foodies. The partnership enables the two organizations to continue their commitment to 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 help Habitat build homes, hope and community in Durham. Fundraising will be done through peer-to-peer campaigns and online contributions at www.sportoften.com when runners register for the event.
“Durham Habitat thrives on strong partnerships with those that care. We’re thrilled to have QBCRF as a partner as we build, sell and repair homes in Durham. Participants will run through neighborhoods made stronger and revitalized by Habitat homes and homeowners over the past 30 years. Together we’re building homes, hope and community in Durham.” said Blake Strayhorn, Durham Habitat’s Executive Director.
“Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Durham is a testament to our commitment to the Durham community and to enhancing the lives of those around us. This is a perfect fit for the Quintiles Bull City Race Fest and for Durham Habitat – together we are well positioned to make a significant positive impact on the community and we are so excited to see what we can do!” said Endurance Magazine founder Steve Lackey.
Runners can set up their own fundraising page here.
We also partner with numerous non-profit organizations to produce this great event.
The Duke University Ski and Snowboard Team is one of over thirty Club Sports offered at Duke. Club Sports teams compete against other schools in our area – for us, that means UVA, Virginia Tech, Appalachian State, JMU, UNC- Chapel Hill, and Eastern Carolina. Yes, we are aware that Duke does not have a mountain, but that doesn’t stop us from being awesome– or from getting in shape. Starting in the fall, we’ll have dryland practices, four times a week. One of these four days will be a “fun day,” where we’ll play a game of soccer or flag football rather than do an organized conditioning workout. Practices consist of activities such as: Running through the gardens, interval training, speed work on the track, and runs through the quarry During these practices, you’ll get to know the upperclassmen on the team and get in shape before race season. Attendance is taken at every practice, because those members that are most committed will be invited to attend our Winter Trip.
