Duke Cross Country Facility

With a home campus of nearly 9,000 acres, the Duke training facilities at Duke University are among the best in the nation. Morris Williams Track and Field Stadium is located on the west side of Kennedy Tower, sharing the press box with Koskinen Stadium, and is the new home to the Duke track and field program. Campers also run in the Duke Forest. Gravel roads and dirt foot trails throughout the 7,000 acre Forest provide some of the most scenic areas near Duke University, through woods with streams, flowers, and wildlife. It serves as home to Duke's cross country running teams.

Campers experience campus life on one of the most beautiful college campuses in the nation. They stay in air conditioned double dorm rooms on Duke's Gothic style West Campus, the academic and residential heart of Duke. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in the main cafeteria (Great Hall). All meals are buffet style.

    He loves the camp

    July 30, 2018: Great coaches, very knowledgeable and encouraging. My son enjoys interacting with the college athlete coaches, it helps him understand the level of commitment required to pursue athletics in college. He loves the camp (and we are Tarheels for goodness sake!)

    The runs pushed me without being too much

    July 30, 2018: I liked learning about the recruiting process for college because I thought it was very informative getting that information from an actual college coach. The highlight of my experience was the runs that we did every day and getting to see the Duke campus. I thought that the runs pushed me without being too much. I just wish the camp was longer! It was exhausting, but if it were longer, we would become used to the running and improve even more.
