Enjoy warm weather and social connections with the Duke Run/Walk Club, which begins March 9. 

The 12-week program, which is organized by LIVE FOR LIFE, Duke’s employee wellness program, is free for staff and faculty of all fitness levels. The club meets at the following locations on Mondays and Wednesdays:

  • East Campus: 5:30 p.m. at the section of the wall across from the Human Resources Building at 705 Broad Street. (Beginner and intermediate walkers and runners)
  • Al Buehler Trail on West Campus: 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Meet at the Green Zone Al Buehler jogging trail lot off 751/Cameron Boulevard. (advanced walkers and runners)

David Bradway, a research scientist for Duke’s Biomedical Engineering Department, has participated in the Run/Walk Club for six years. Bradway uses the club to train for Durham's Running of the Bulls 8K in May and the Bull City Race Fest half marathon in October. 

“It’s motivating to log my runs each week,” Bradway said. “I like seeing the progress I make through the club, watching my mile time slowly tick down. You see the work paying off.”

If you can’t make the sessions, participate by tracking workouts online. Run/Walk Club participants also have access to free strength and fitness classes. 

Register now for the club.
