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. Sign up online today! Paper registration forms (as well as club membership forms) will also be available at the events.

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.

Here are the series standings to date.
