The Godiva Cross Country Series returns through the month of September, but like much else, it will be different this year. Like summer track, the XC series will be a do it yourself affair, with a system to report your results online.
We will still offer the alternating venues between Finley XC Trail @ Chapel Hill and Al Buehler Trail @ Durham, but you'll also be able to choose a 5, 8, or 10k of your own if those locations don't work for you. So if you want to map out a cross country worthy route at Umstead State Park, or along some other trail, go for it.
This year we're taking it one race at a time, as series director Susie Hansley explains in the Godiva Winter Series announcement. The season kicks off in early October with The Run for the Donuts in a different location and a virtual format, so be sure to check it out and then sign up for the series online.
It is now possible to order a variety of CGTC logoed gear online. Browse the inventory!
The 1001 Mile Challenge is a new Godiva initiative for 2020 to encourage an increased commitment to exercise along with some friendly competition. As a Godiva member, you can enroll in the challenge and keep track of your intentional completed miles, regardless of pace, throughout the calendar year. We'll provide online tracking of monthly and overall progress.
All participants who complete 1001 or more miles by the end of the year will receive an official certificate and a finisher surprise! We will also declare a 1001 Mile Challenge Champion at the end of the year.
