"Where else can you have so much fun for one dollar?"
The 2016 edition of Godiva's popular Summer Track Series will offer twelve weeks of all comers meets at the UNC-Chapel Hill track facility, beginning at 7 pm on Wednesday, May 18th (with the Long Night program) and concluding on August 3rd. The theme of this year's Midsummer Madness meet on July 29th will be "Glory Days."
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.

Results from the Hard Climb Hill Run are in, and with that this edition of the Godiva Winter Series concludes. Thanks to all the race directors and volunteers who helped make it possible. Let's do it again next season.
As February came to a close, Team Godiva approached Baghdad, Iraq, roughly 13,000 miles into its trip around the world.
We've arranged with the Racery to keep the contest going until we make our way back to Durham. Will we go around the world in 80 days?
So, keep running your miles anywhere you happen to be and log them each day.
Contact Jess Jenkins if you have any questions about the virtual run.

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.
