Dukes Take on Summer 5k Road Races at Altitude!

Over the past few weeks, members of the Dukes Track Club have hit the local scene to take on various 5k road races! These summer races have allowed the Dukes to take advantage of the cool mornings and chase after some fast times. The Jim Thorpe Native American 5k National Championships and the Freedom Run 5k have both offered strong competition on a fast course! The Jim Thorpe 5k was held on June 25th at the Southwestern Indian Polytechnical Institute and the Freedom Run 5k was ran near Tingley Beach adjacent to the Rio Grande.
