Summer Track Series


One of the most popular programs on Carolina Godiva Track Club's annual calendar is the Summer Track Series.

Typically beginning in mid-to-late May and going through early August, the club hosts weekly "all comers" meets on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00 p.m. The location of the series each season depends on track availability.  We've held the meets at UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, and Durham Academy Upper School in different years.

The schedule alternates weekly between a "long night" schedule:

* Mile run
* 200m
* One mile racewalk
* 800m
* 5000m

and a "short night" program:

* 1500m run
* 100m
* 1500m racewalk
* 400m
* 3000m

Runners should bring their own water.

All are welcome.  You need not be a member of Godiva to participate, but the club does pay a rental fee to use the track facility at Durham Academy.  For that reason, we ask all runners to please make a donation of $2.00 a meet for individuals, or $5.00 per meet for a family.  We'll have a bucket on site to accept cash, but if it is more convenient to make your donation online, please use the PayPal button below, either on a week by week basis or with a single donation for your participation throughout the season. You do not need a PayPal account to use this service.

We look forward to seeing you on the track.
