Please follow the instructions below, registering on this website doesn't mean you are fully registered for the race.

Okay, I'm convinced, how do I register for the race?

This is a 4 step process this year.

 1. Fill out this Google form to register for the race!  - Google Form:

 2. Load money onto your Flex account. The eAccounts App makes this process simple or it can be done online at

  • Log into your Duke account via the eAccounts app or through the desktop page
  • Click “EACCOUNTS” login link
  • Select your Flex account and click “Add Money”
  • Load $30 into your account through Apple Pay/credit/debit
  • Confirm your Flex account total has been updated
  • *Once you have loaded your FLEX money you are not quite done yet!!

 3. Follow this link to our race website to make your $30 donation. Your $30 donation covers the race shirt and registration for the race.

 4. Email Terry and Jordyn a screenshot confirmation of the donation to confirm registration (please include us both on the email).

~ Please ensure you fully complete all 4 steps to ensure your t-shirt and registration for race day!

I know someone who wants to participate in the race, but they are not a Duke student or faculty member. Can they participate in the race?

Yes. The process is slightly different this year. If you are interested in the 5k but do not have access to a Dukelogin to use Flex money, there are two options for payment.

  1. Make a donation with someone else's personal student account with the method listed above that covers you both as racers ($30 per participant; If you use this option, please describe within your screenshot confirmation email with the name of who you paid for).
  2. Pay with cash on the day of the race. (This is only an option for non-Duke students or faculty; please still fill out the Google form). – If you are able to do option 1, please do so. This option should be used as a last resort. **Everyone planning on participating in race day should fill out their own Google form please** 

Are there any new aspects of the race this year?

Also yes! This year's race has a little ~twist~ from last year's event.

You can now sign up in a TEAM for the race to add a little more friendly competition. Teams can be between 5-10 people (minimum of 5) and additional/ bigger prizes will be given for winning teams. Winning teams will be decided based on the sum of the TOP 5 finisher’s places that they finish in (similar to cross-country scoring rules). Feel free to join the Medicine in Motion Team! If you are participating on a team, please add your team name and members to this Google sheet:

If you would like to run the race individually, that is also a great option!

Will there be prizes?

Of course!! Prizes will be given to winning teams, individual top finishers, and raffle winners. Prizes include everything from Duke swag to rock climbing memberships to Fleet Feet gift cards, Medicine in Motion swag (hats, stickers and T-shirts) and more!

We understand this is a lengthy process to sign up, so if you have any additional questions please reach out to Jordyn Parks and Terry Brown via email. We cannot wait to continue this annual tradition and to see you all on race day!
