The 2015-16 Godiva Winter Series features a long time favorite, the Geezer Pleezer, on February 14th. For this race, each participant gets assigned a handicapped starting time based on age and sex, and the first to the finish wins. Geezers are generally "pleezed" with the results.
Please help to speed things along at race day registration by sending us this RSVP for the Geezer Pleezer. We'll have a start time and bib number pre-assigned for you.
Here's the 2016 table of time handicaps.RSVP for the Geezer Pleezer!
Members and guests as well can sign up on the day of the race. All races begin at 10 AM, except the New Year's Day race which starts at 1 PM.
As the month of January came to a close, Team Godiva trekked the Russian wilderness, just entering the federation of Amur Oblast -- over 7000 miles into our run around the globe. The mountain scenery is terrific.
Thanks to the Racery, we're able to continue logging miles through the month of February. So it isn't too late to join the CGTC team.
We may not make it back to Durham, but we can still have some fun and draw some motivation from seeing how close we can get.
So, run your miles anywhere you happen to be and log them each day. It's really easy!
Contact Jess Jenkins if you have any questions.
Godiva Track Club will present the 13th Annual Umstead Trail Marathon on Saturday, March 5, 2016. All 26.2 miles of the marathon lie within the borders of William B. Umstead State Park. The course consists of some technical single-track, but is mostly run on the park’s bridle trails, which are the width of a single lane road and covered with fine gravel. The route is scenic and hilly.
The field size is limited and the sign up slots fill quickly, so please don't delay in visiting the registration site soon after it opens at 8 AM EST on Monday, November 30th.
