This spring Godiva introduces two additions to its weekly run schedule. Monday night will offer a pub run from Ruckus Pizza in Cary's Arboretum Shopping Center (Harrison Avenue at Weston Parkway). The running will get underway at 6:30 pm, and runners are invited to hang around to socialize afterward at Ruckus. We'll add a second Thursday night run, too, starting at 6:00 pm from Carrboro's Wilson Park. Check the links for more details, then come out to join us.

Founded in 1975 at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Godiva Track Club has about members of all ages and abilities, and welcomes new members.
Godiva offers an annual Running Start program for those who are new or returning to the sport. The club presents popular running events like the Umstead Trail Marathon. Godiva's annual calendar also features weekly summer track meets, and a winter series of cross country runs. There are regularly scheduled group runs most days of the week.
Oh yes, one more thing: You may wonder why we're called the Godiva Track Club. Here's the story.
