Stay Away 5K

April 24-25, 2021: Just because we have to keep our distance, doesn’t mean we have to stay inside! Join the Duke Lemur Center on Earth Day weekend for our very own Stay Away 5K, with all proceeds benefiting lemur care and conservation!

Because this is a virtual race, you can participate from anywhere in the world. Register via the 5K homepage, then run—or walk—a 5K, by yourself or with your immediate family, on April 24 or 25. Your $30 registration fee benefits lemurs AND includes a Stay Away 5K commemorative t-shirt and decal!
