COVID-19 Updates & Action Plan


The health, safety, and well-being of our team and our customers is and will always be our first priority and we take that responsibility very seriously. The COVID-19 virus continues to impact our communities even as North Carolina moves into a phased re-opening, which includes retail shops like Bull City Running Co. We are open to customers with a number of specific safety procedures and protocols that are outlined above.

We will continue to offer virtual/online fittings, online sales, and free local delivery or shipping.

Join the Durham Social Distance Project!

Because the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the cancelation or postponement of many races and running meet-ups, we created the Durham Social Distance Project (DSDP) to help you stay active, connected, and sane. The first activity of the challenge is a Strava Segment Challenge! Learn more about the project and join the challenge here. Lots of fun prizes and ways to support other local businesses!
