About This Activity


Are you in tune with your running pace? If asked, could you calculate your time to complete a specific distance, regardless of the weather conditions, terrain, elevation profiles, or the help of your trusty GPS watch? If so, you may have an advantage at Bull City Running's second annual Shot in the Dark Prediction Run!

This race isn't determined by how fast you are, but how well you know your running! Upon registration, runners must predict how long it will take to run a 6k out-and-back on the American Tobacco Trail. Whoever finishes closest to their predicted time, wins! Grab your headlamp and leave your watch at home. It’s time for you to take a Shot in the Dark!
