For the sixth consecutive year, the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin will be a primary sponsor for the 10th annual Running of the Bulls 8K community road race in downtown Durham, Saturday, June 2nd at the Durham Athletic Park.

This official USA Track & Field 8K Championship race has grown in number each year, attracting nearly 1,500 elite and recreational runners in 2017. This year many James Scott Farrin employees will not only be running in the event, but some will also man the water station at mile 4, handing out water, cheering on runners, and taking photos, which will appear on the law firm’s Facebook page.

Fun and fitness is part of the James Scott Farrin culture. Several years ago, the firm organized a “Farrin Fit” club. To help motivate and inspire employees who desired to become more mindful of their health and fitness, the firm donated an allowance toward Fitbits for all employees who wanted them. Throughout the year, the firm also sponsors free “Lunch and Learns” bringing in experts to speak on areas of health, nutrition, general wellbeing, and physical fitness.

James Scott Farrin Attorney Cristen Bartus, a volunteer organizer said, “The Running of the Bulls race has become a hallmark summer event in the Durham community and the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is tremendously supportive of it.”

Race directors and owners of Bull City Running Co., Jason Page and Kim Chapman, created the race 10 years ago, and every year event proceeds have gone to a local non-profit. The couple’s passion for running and for downtown Durham’s historic architecture and history prompted them to initiate this event so others might come together and appreciate it too. The scenic 8-kilometer (4.97-mile) route will wind through the historic and revitalized neighborhoods of downtown Durham, American Tobacco Campus, Trinity Park, and Old North Durham neighborhoods, and finish with a lap of the warning track inside the historic Old Durham Athletic Park.

The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is headquartered in the American Tobacco Historic District, adjacent to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, in Durham, North Carolina, with 13 additional offices statewide in Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Greenville, Goldsboro, Henderson, New Bern, Raleigh, Roanoke Rapids, Rocky Mount, Sanford, Wilson, and Winston-Salem.
