Celebrate 25 years of independent music—kilometer by kilometer—with Merge Records!
To kick off a year of festivities and special releases surrounding our 25th anniversary, Merge Records and Bull City Running Co. will host a 25K road race on Saturday, March 22, 2014.
The first point-to-point race of its kind, participants will convene at the starting line in Chapel Hill, where Merge had its beginnings, and race to the finish in our current home of downtown Durham. Our hope is to generate significant donations for the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and Habitat for Humanity of Durham and Orange County while marking the momentous occasion of 25 years of releasing great music from our beloved home of North Carolina.

This is a point-to-point race from Chapel Hill to Durham, NC.
Exact starting location, finish location, and course are still being finalized.
Prior to the start of the race, shuttle service will be provided from the finish line in Durham to the starting line in Chapel Hill.
