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 Fullsteam's own commemorative beer for the run, a twangy sport drink Gose (a Fruit Punch edition featuring locally farmed ingredients), they will be pouring guest beers and ciders from friends across the state, with a focus on low-ABV and crisp taste.
Pricing: 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, they 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. They 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 a specialty running and walking store in the Durham area, dedicated to building a community of runners and walkers by creating a fun, informative, and inspiring place for people pursuing their fitness goals.
