Former student-athletes, Iron Dukes and Duke fans: 

Make plans now to join Duke Track & Field April 26-27 at the Penn Relay Carnival as the Duke team competes for the coveted carnival wheels! This is your chance to come out and support our Duke student-athletes at the world's largest annual track & field meet.

In what is quickly becoming a tradition, the Iron Dukes has made special plans for Duke fans at the Penn Relays. A block of tickets will be available through the Penn Relays website for Friday and Saturday for purchase. There are also two social events planned to provide opportunities to connect with the Duke coaches, student-athletes and fans. On Friday, gather at the New Deck Tavern and get the coaches' perspective on the first two days of competition, then on Saturday morning attend the Duke Champions Breakfast at the heart of the Penn Relays at the historic Inn at Penn to connect with our student-athletes and wish them well in their day of competition.

To sign-up for the weekend, register online. If you have setup an account through for previous ticket purchases, please use your existing login. If not, set up a new account that you will be able to use for all future Duke ticket and event registrations. Registration options include:

  • Registration for the weekend - $10 per person.
  • Meet & Greet at the New Deck Tavern, Friday, April 26 at 8pm: Meet the Duke coaches at the New Deck Tavern to get a recap of the day's competition and connect with other Duke fans attending the relays. No charge.
  • Duke Champions Breakfast, Saturday, April 27 at 8am.: Get your Penn Relays day started with an exclusive breakfast at the Inn at Penn with the Duke Track & Field team and coaches. $27 per person.                           

Please note: The registration fee is non-refundable. Cancellations for the breakfast are refundable until April 4. Because of demand for hotel rooms in Philadelphia during the Penn Relays, registrants are encouraged to make hotel reservations on their own at their preferred hotel.

Directions to purchase tickets to the Penn Relays competition in the Duke block directly from Penn Athletics are included on the registration page.

If you have any questions about the event, please do not hesitate to contact Deirdre Gordon at or 919-668-1754.

We look forward to seeing you at the Penn Relays!
