A Special Message for 2016-17: This year's Godiva Winter Series series is dedicated to the memory of our friend and fellow club member Greg Sousa, who passed of brain cancer on July 14th. We're donating proceeds from this year's winter series to Badousa Brain, a fundraising team for the Angels Among Us 5k. Greg formed and led this team in the years after his diagnosis in order to support the work of the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke. If you'd like to make an additional contribution in Greg's memory, please visit the Angels Among Us 2017 donation page, and make your gift to the Badousa Brain team.
The Winter Series races are low-key, low-stakes, mostly cross-country runs meant for enjoyment and camaraderie. Runners of all abilities are welcome to participate.
Race-day-only registration costs $5 and opens an hour before the race start. All races begin at 10 am except for the New Year’s Day run, which starts at 1pm. Free entry for those 18 and under, so bring the whole family!
Current Carolina Godiva Track Club members may pre-pay for all seven Winter Series races for only $25.
Additionally, series registrants can earn the Incredibly Beautiful Winter Series T-Shirt™ by running or volunteering at 5 of the 7 events. Running the Hard Climb Hill 10-miler counts as two events. Participants’ standings will be published online (and initially in the newsletter).
Race announcements will be in the newsletter and on the club website. Additional race details can be found online. If you have any unanswered questions related to a specific race, please contact the race director.
The races can’t be put on without volunteers. Please contact the race director prior to the race if you’d like to help.
