Location: Parking is usually available at the Asbury United Methodist Church, 806 Clarendon St., Durham or along the side street, 5 Alley. The church is located at the corner of Markham Ave. and 5 Alley in Durham, just behind Duke's East Campus. The parking lot faces Markham Ave and we meet across the street behind the rock wall.
The run follows the "wall trail" along Duke's East Campus and then goes under the Main St. bridge onto Campus Dr. We take Campus Dr. up past the roundabout and head up Chapel Dr. The run follows Chapel Dr. to the Duke Chapel and then heads back to the Asbury Methodist parking lot. We stop for a water break at one of the buildings on Chapel Dr. The total distance is 5.27 miles. This is basically a no drop run. Fast runners will likely be disappointed. We only drop our friends. In cooler weather sometimes we may run 8-9 minute miles and in the summer sometimes the fastest pace may be around a 14 minute mile. Power hiking is cool too.
