News and Announcements

CGTC will host a One Hour Run on Wednesday, August 22rd at the Durham Academy Upper School track.  See how many laps you can complete while the race clock clicks off one hour. The event begins at 7:00 pm.

Bring your own water and someone to count your laps (they may want to bring a chair to sit on, and a paper and pen). We also recommend you bring insect repellent.

If you don’t want to run, come be a volunteer lap-counter (email our One-Hour Run Race Director Bob Nelson for more info)!

It may be hard to imagine as we swelter in our running, but fall is only a few months away. That means it is time for our club's annual picnic! This year we will have a good, old-fashioned grilling picnic with hamburgers, brats, and hot dogs. We’ll even make some veggie burgers. Here are the particulars: Get event details and if you'd like to join the party.

Godiva will offer a series of informal cross country races at 6:00 pm on Wednesday evenings during the month of September. Events will alternate between UNC's XC trails adjacent to Finley Golf Course and Duke's Al Buehler Trail, with at least two distance options offered each evening:

  • Sept. 5: Durham’s Al Buehler Trail @ Duke. 5k, 8k, or 10k.
  • Sept. 12: Chapel Hill’s Finley XC Trail. 5k or 8k
  • Sept. 19: Durham's Al Buehler Trail 5k 8k or 10k.
  • Sept. 26 : Chapel Hill’s Finley XC Trail. 5k or 8k; followed by season finale cookout.


As a sponsor of the Race Across Durham Trail Marathon and 10-Miler, which will take place on Sunday, 12/2/18, CGTC has received a free registration to the race. We are going to raffle the free registration to any CGTC member who attends at least 8 Godiva events between 7/16/18 and 9/30/18.

If you have already registered for the race and win the raffle, Bull City Running Company, the race sponsor, will refund you your registration!
