An All-Day Party:

The Point 262 has something for everyone. A Very Serious Run for, well, the serious; A Rather Fun Run for the recreational athlete; and Impromptu Feats of Strength, which is just a good time for participants and spectators.

Sign-up for the Feats of Strength will take place on race day from 12:30-2:30pm in the Satellite Bar at Fullsteam. Space is Limited.

  • A Very Serious Run

    A chip-timed, competitive .262 sprint through downtown Durham.
  • A Rather Fun Run

    A recreational run for all ages and abilities through downtown Durham.
  • Impromptu Feats of Strength

    The Growler Lift

    Pit your muscles and willpower against two full growlers, each held straight in front of you. All contestants go up against each other at the same time. If your arms bend or drop too far – you’re out! Last one standing (with their arms still straight) wins!

    Bottle Cap Disc Golf

    Good at throwing a disc?...that has nothing to do with this Feat. You get 10 bottle caps and 3 five-gallon buckets, each with a different point amount. We’re keeping it simple: the most points after 10 bottle caps wins. In the case of a tie, the leaders go head-to-head with another 10 caps.

    Relay Foods’ Relay of Food

    Teams of 4 relay their way through some delicious, local food from our friends at Relay Foods. This is a 4-course meal, each with its own set of challenges. We’re keeping this one under wraps, or perhaps a cloche until the actual event. If you have food allergies, let us know when you sign up.

    Growler Chugging Contest

    While we don’t encourage anyone to chug a growler full of beer, we do encourage you to chug a growler full of Nuun (electrolyte goodness). AND we encourage you to do it faster than the other 9 people you’ll be competing against.
