Run/Walk Club Events
The Run/Walk Club offers free fitness and body fat testing, educational seminars, and yoga classes. See the schedule below for dates and locations. Be sure to register for reminders and updates due to adverse weather or cancellations.
Many LIVE FOR LIFE programs, including the Duke Run/Walk Club, are on hold to allow Employee Occupational Health & Wellness staff to work on COVID-19 contract tracing.
The Duke Run/Walk Club is a group of Duke employees who gather together for support and coaching to help reach their fitness goals by walking, running, or a combination of both.
Groups gather at West Campus' Al Buehler Trail, East Campus at the Wall, across from the HR Building (705 Broad St), and at the Duke Raleigh Gardens. East and West Campus groups meet at 5:30 p.m. on Monday and Wednesdays. Duke Raleigh meets on Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. Groups can expect a casual and fun environment with gentle motivation and support for success.
Report Your Sessions
Each week you have the opportunity to report the days you train with the Run/Walk Club, whether it's with a group, on your own or on another day. You may earn credit for up to two sessions per week, since we meet as a group twice each week. LIVE FOR LIFE dollars are earned by reporting your sessions by May 27th.
