Race To Impact Buses Traffic Sunday

Duke’s C1, C2 bus routes won’t run until late morning

Traffic throughout central Durham will be affected Sunday morning, Oct. 19, as the city hosts the second Bull City Race Fest half marathon.

The race, which begins at 7:30 a.m. at the American Tobacco Campus, will impact Duke’s C1 and C2 transit routes, which will be delayed until as late as 10:30 a.m. to allow for the event to come to a close. 

After the race begins, it will proceed through East Campus and West Campus via Campus Drive and Anderson Street, filling the streets with runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. To ensure safety, Duke bus service along the race route will be delayed until the course has cleared and streets are navigable for Duke bus drivers.

Both the C1 and C2 routes will not run until the race is over. In addition, several city streets and intersections will be closed from 5 to 11 a.m.:

  • Jackie Robinson Street at the 147 ramp in front of Durham Bulls Athletic Park
  • Willard Street at Blackwell Street
  • Blackwell Street between Morehead Avenue and West Pettigrew Street

All other roads used for the course will close and re-open once the last runner passes through that area. For a complete listing of Durham road closures during the Bull City Race Fest, see this chart.
