Marathon in the City


The Beta Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated in partnership with Uplift Project Inc. (UPI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, will be hosting the Inaugural Bull City 5k Diabetes Walk/Run in conjunction with National Men’s Health Awareness Month on June 3, 2023.

This event will be the first of its kind held in Durham highlighting Diabetes Awareness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. In the last twenty years, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has more than doubled.


Participants will join hundreds of community members,
affiliates, friends, and family for a leisurely or competitive run along parts of the beautiful American Tobacco Trail and Downtown Durham on a USA Track and Field Certified 5k Course. However, this event is not USA Track and Field sanctioned at this time.
