Godiva Summer Track is Back! The 2022 edition of Godiva's Summer Track Series returns  to the Durham Academy Upper School Track. There will be eight meets this season in two four week sessions. We begin with a "long night" on June 8th, then a week off for the July 4th holiday. The second session begins "short" on July 13th and wraps up "long" on August 3rd.

Results: June 8th, June 15, June 22, June 29

Important Message: While we're glad to be back at Durham Academy after two seasons of "do it yourself" summer track,  rental of the facility this year includes a significant increase in security-related costs that we did not have to bear in 2019.  For that reason, we must ask that participants plan on contributing $5.00 per meet to help defray the additional expenses. Thanks for your support that will help to keep summer track going, a Godiva tradition that goes back to our founding in 1975.

Time: All meets begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp, rain or shine.

Location: Durham Academy Upper School Track, 3601 Ridge Rd, Durham, NC 27705

Weather policy: Meets will be held rain or shine unless conditions are deemed unsafe (repeated nearby lightning or standing water on the track). Decisions about cancellation or postponement will be based on conditions at the track at starting time and NOT on forecasts!

Cost: This season we ask that participants plan to contribute $5 per meet to help defray the additional security fees the club needs to rent the Durham Academy track. 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 Donate button. It is fine to make a single donation in an amount to cover your participation throughout the season. You do not need a PayPal account to use this service. Thanks for supporting Godiva Summer Track!

Runners, please bring your own water.
