On Your Mark, Get Set…Eat, Run, Bike, and Swim!


May 26th brings the running of Durham’s fifth annual Doughman Challenge Quadrathalon, the race that combines running, biking, swimming, and eating! Though registration sold out back in February for this popular team event the public is till welcome to watch the race and cheer on the participants. This year the race is helping to support SEEDS, a non-profit community garden that educates adults and youth through gardening.

Race participants will start and finish at the Durham Centre Parking Lot (at the corner of Rigsbee and Seminary) and each team member will complete one athletic leg followed by stop at one of Durham’s fantastic restaurants to chow down. This unique event has even been featured on the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food


Even though registration is sold out you can still be involved in the Doughman Challenge. You can cheer on the participants on the morning of the 26th (the race will start at 8:00 am), you can donate to their cause and support SEEDS, and you can still join in the post-race fun and buy tickets for the Doughman banquet hosted at Motorco Music Hall and featuring food and beverages from around Durham.
