Veterans Victory Lap
Promoting veteran engagement in our community

Durham North Carolina Veterans Victory Lap - About

The Veterans Day Victory Lap is a celebration - of new beginnings, of a job well done, of community joining together, and of excellence in service.


What is it?

We invite you to join us on Veterans Day this year to run a 5K “Victory Lap” on Duke University’s beautiful East Campus. Whether you run, walk, ruck, (or even crawl), we would love to link arms as we celebrate the rich history of service in the Armed Forces that exists right here in our region.


Why here?

North Carolina has the third highest population of Veterans in the US, and hundreds of thousands of them live right here in the Triangle Region. They are our family, our neighbors, our teachers, our colleagues, our local business owners, our public servants, our friends - our community.


What's the Impact?

The Victory Lap is dedicated to celebrating the “second lap” that many veterans are running right now, and to celebrate the organizations and community efforts dedicated to supporting that victory lap. Proceeds from the race are dedicated to BunkerLabs-RDU, a 501(c)(3) organization built by military veteran entrepreneurs to empower other military veterans as leaders in innovation.
