The 6th Annual Point 262 Run
August 24 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
$15 – $25
The Point 262
Run Two Minutes, Party All Day. Costumes pretty much expected.
Fullsteam Brewery partners with Bull City Running Co. for a 0.262 mile competitive run–the original 1/100 marathon. A fun run follows for those who are going to dress up and walk, dance, walk-dance, or roll their way through .262 miles with flair. Plus enjoy live music all day on two stages!
After the runs are The Impromptu Feats of Strength, a yearly competition testing can-stacking, bottlecap-flicking, growler-holding, and more.
In addition to our own commemorative beer for the run, a twangy sport drink Gose (a Fruit Punch edition featuring locally farmed ingredients), we are happy to announce that we’ll be pouring guest beers and ciders from our friends across the state, with a focus on low-ABV and crisp taste.
For $25, participants can sign up as a for-real runner or a for-fun runner. Either way, they’ll get a race bib, the coveted Point 262 magnet, three drink tokens (8oz half pints), access to The Feats of Strength, the opportunity to win prizes, and more day-of surprises.
Families are welcome! For $15, we also have a Designated Driver and Kids option: participants can run, compete in The Feats of Strength, win prizes just like anyone else, and will receive a token for a non-alcoholic drink.

Fullsteam is the original Plow to Pint brewery, an all-welcome tavern, and, now, a seasonally focused kitchen. We launched Fullsteam in 2010 with a single mission: to explore what it means to be a Southern brewery. Sometimes that means brewing with foraged and farmed adjuncts. Other times it means making innovative beers with local grain. And sometimes it means just making true-to-style beers more Southern in temperament.
Bull City Running Co. is the premiere specialty running and walking store in the Durham area. We are dedicated to building a community of runners and walkers by creating a fun, informative, and inspiring place for people pursuing their fitness goals.
