The Angels Among Us 5K run is a competitive certified course. Enjoy rolling hills as you run through the beautiful Duke campus, by the Duke Chapel and the Nasher Museum. It begins and ends at the main event on Flowers Drive and is guided by the Duke and Durham police. 

If you choose to walk the 5K route, please note the police can only block streets until the last 5K runner comes through (approximatedly 1 hour 15 minutes). At that time you will need to walk on sidewalks and obey traffic laws for pedestrian safety.
