The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin was proud to sponsor and participate in the Running of the Bulls 8K race Saturday, June 1st, but their “partnership” is what race director, Kim Chapman Page considered most valuable.
“We like to engage with sponsors who are going to be more like a partner and that’s been the really special thing about the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin’s involvement in the Running of the Bulls 8K for the past three years,” Chapman Page said. “They help promote it, encourage participation, get volunteers out on the course – it’s a much bigger presence than just writing a check.”
The Running of the Bulls 8K is an annual road race throughout downtown Durham that supports different charity groups each year. It is organized by Bull City Running Co. and this year’s race proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Durham and the Boston One Fund.
According to Tara Williams, attorney and shareholder at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, “We liked the idea of supporting Durham and local charities with an event based here. The race also integrates well with the firm's increased focus on employee fitness.”
Williams reported that nearly 30 employees and employee guests were among the 1300 participants who crossed the finish line for this year’s race.
In addition, many volunteers gathered to cheer on and pass out water and Gatorade to weary runners at mile marker 4.

Runner, Law Offices of James Scott Farrin attorney and event organizer, Cristen Bartus said she thought the race was a “huge success” and is excited for next year.
“The temperature was hotter than last year, but the race was still tremendously fun. I’m glad our firm continues to support such a great community event,” Bartus said.
