Running of the Bulls 8K

**NOW 100% VIRTUAL**

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US FOR THE 12TH RUNNING OF DURHAM’S PREMIERE COMMUNITY ROAD RACE!

Because our community’s safety and wellbeing is our first priority, we have made the decision to transition the 2020 Running of the Bulls 8K to a virtual race. We did everything we could to bring you a safe in-person event; unfortunately, with COVID-19 case numbers continuing to rise and NC remaining in Phase 2 of reopening, an in-person race is not in our community’s best interest.

If you are already registered, your in-person registration will automatically transfer to a virtual registration. Because we have incurred a majority of our race costs, we cannot offer any refunds or transfers. We really appreciate your understanding and hope you will run with us virtually!

And hey, there are tons of benefits to virtual races:

  • You can run whenever you want! You can watch the weather and run on a cooler, less humid day, go out before 7:15am, or wait until later in the day when you’ve had your coffee and taken…care of business.
  • You can plan a route that doesn’t involve going up the hills on Trinity and Washington! But here’s a pedestrian-friendly Running of the Bulls course if you want something close to the original.
  • You can participate if you don’t live in Durham! Tell your friends and family from all over the country that anyone can run the Running of the Bulls 8k! Registration will remain open until August 26th at 8:00pm EST.

Please read carefully the instructions below on how to complete the virtual 8K, submit your results, and pick up your t-shirt and medal. If you have any specific questions please email runningofthebulls8k@gmail.com or fill out the contact form below.

Virtual-BULL Details and Instructions: 

  • You can complete your 8K any time between now and August 29th.
  • All results must be submitted by 5PM on August 29th if you wish to be represented in the standings.
  • To submit your time, visit the itsyourrace Running of the Bulls results page. [Click here for a video on how to update your results for the virtual 8K once completed.]
  • NOTE: We are not requiring participants to download the itsyourrace app or submit live results but that resource is there if you choose! A manual entry based on the good ol’ honor system does the trick!
