The Spring Duke Run/Walk Club Starts March 13
Being active by running or walking is a great way to manage weight, increase activity and combat stress. Make the move toward better health.
Join the Duke Run/Walk Club and meet your health and fitness goals - whether you're a beginner walker or an experienced runner training for a race. Offered each spring and fall, the club is a free, 12-week program for all Duke faculty and staff at all fitness levels.
For those who cannot make the group meetings, we encourage you to choose a fitness level that works best for you and participate by doing the workouts on your own on a day that fits your schedule. You can still report your sessions online each week and receive credit for participating. Find out about all the benefits and incentives.
