BlueBlood Rivalry RunFest: race description
Ready to take your GAME DAY activities to the next level? Join us for the inaugural BlueBlood Rivalry Run/Walk and Basketball Dribble!
Here’s your chance to celebrate, support, and participate in the Duke/North Carolina rivalry like never before. Declare your allegiance and receive your race shirt in either Duke Blue or Carolina Blue. Run, walk, or yes, dribble the 5K course and receive the first edition BlueBlood commemorative medallion bottle opener!
Wait a minute. Dribble?
That’s right. Fans who choose to dribble a basketball the entire way will get a three minute head start! Our goal is to break the Guinness Book of World Records for largest basketball 5K. Don’t worry. We won’t be calling travel.
This new tradition takes place on Game Day, March 4th, 2017, before the basketball game between the two powerhouse programs. Fans of both schools will gather to compete for supremacy in the fun, festive atmosphere, while raising money for The Special Olympics.
In addition to the sweet blue swag, entry also includes the post race party complete with Blue Pancake Feast, Blue Blood Beer Garden, and the Big Blue Rock Concert.
Hold on… Don’t have blue blood? That’s OK. Choose the “Party Crasher Division” and receive the custom Crasher T-Shirt in White and Red!
Who has the most fanatics? The Blue Devils, the Tar Heels, or the rest of the State combined? Only you can tip the scales in your favor. We are taking this Rivalry to the Streets!
