    Gentlemen of the Triangle,

    Your trusted planning committee has been hard at work getting ready for this year’s running of “The Bull”. Here’s what you need to know:

    When: Saturday 4/1 from 0600 – 1000 (yes, I know thats 4 hours… keep reading)

    Where: Downtown Durham, specifically “R1 parking lot by Harris Teeter” adjacent to Vin Rouge and Blu Seafood

    Who: Anyone with a Y-chromosome. Seriously. Churham, Carpex, Raleigh, etc… Familiar faces like Subprime, DOI, Sweats, and MARTA, along with some new faces from Raleigh and Carpex will be leading you along this journey.

    Please know that this is not a continuous 4 hour workout; you perform a 20ish minute workout, then travel to the next site. There will be several stations and the journey between each site is just as important. I promise you that if you can complete one of our Churham workouts, you can complete the Bull. A “sag wagon” for those who are tired, hurt, or need a breather will be available.

    Reward: Coffeeteria at Monuts afterwards, and a sweet mystery shirt that you can purchase from the F3 Mudgear website here – you can order until 4/2 (the day after)

    What I need from you?
    – Please sign up here so we can continue to plan various parts of the event
    – If you are injured, consider being a “sag wagon” driver to help support the pax

    We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 4/1.
