IMPORTANT UPDATE, JUNE 27th:
The 2017 edition of Godiva's Summer Track Series will resume with a long night schedule at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 28th at our new home, Githens Middle School, 4800 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham.
CGTC will host a One Hour Run on Wednesday, August 23rd at the Durham Academy Upper School track. See how many laps you can complete while the race clock clicks off one hour. The race will begin at 7:15 pm; participants will gather at 7:00 pm. Please do not arrive and park at DA before 6:30 pm!
Bring your own water and someone to count your laps (they may want to bring a chair to sit on, and a paper and pen). We also recommend you bring insect repellent, as the critters were hungry last year.
If you don’t want to run, come be a volunteer lap-counter (email our One-Hour Run Race Director Bob Nelson for more info)!
The temperatures will subside and the dew point will drop. That means only one thing: time for the annual picnic. The fifth annual gathering will be on Sunday, September 17th beginning 3:00 p.m. Get event details and if you'd like to join the party.
This year we honored Runners of the Year Kevin McCabe and Megan Sullivan, and Volunteer of the Year Doug Hensel. Retiring Director of Godiva Summer Track Charles Alden received our tributes, gifts, and thanks for his twenty years of service to the club. Here are some photos from the party.
Do you like to run? Are you interested in meeting other people in North Carolina's Research Triangle area who share your interest? If so, you're in the right place.
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 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.
