Since 1993

One of the most famous one one-hundredth marathons in the world

Fun run? Yes. Competitive race? Yes. Beer at the finish?

Heck yes.

The Point 262 is a race for everyone, complete with bragging rights that you finished. And it's not just about running: our feats of strength test your limits -- from sheer muscle power to your ability to hold your hand in a tub of ice.

This year, we're expanding The Point 262 to include a slew of easy-drinking, low-alcohol beers from North Carolina independent breweries. After you run, of course.

If you finish.
