Registration open through Nov. 8, for One-Mile Fun Run and 5K, with portion of proceeds to benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina
The Durham Bulls have announced plans for the second annual Wool E. Bull’s Baste Race presented by PNC Bank, a virtual race featuring a One-Mile Fun Run and 5K to be completed between November 22, and November 28. A portion of the proceeds from the Thanksgiving-themed run will benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Participants may select from one of two distances for their virtual race:
- One-Mile Fun Run: For $25, runners will receive a unique race medal, race bib and t-shirt, as well as a downloadable finisher’s certificate once race results are uploaded. The One-Mile Fun Run is the perfect distance for children wishing to participate.
- 5K: For $50, runners will receive a unique Baste Race medal, race bib and t-shirt, along with a downloadable finisher’s certificate once race results are uploaded. All 5K participants also will receive a voucher that may be redeemed for a ticket to a 2022 Bulls home game.
The two race distances allow people of all ages and abilities to participate, with the virtual format allowing participants to join from anywhere.
“As our community embraces a season of goodwill and gratitude, PNC is pleased to support this race, which celebrates giving back, family togetherness and good health,” said Jim Hansen, PNC regional president for Eastern Carolinas.
