CGTC will host a One Hour Run on Wednesday, August 23rd at the Durham Academy Upper School track. See how many laps you can complete while the race clock clicks off one hour. The race will begin at 7:15 pm; participants will gather at 7:00 pm. Please do not arrive and park at DA before 6:30 pm!
If you plan on running, please sign up here.
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, as the critters were hungry last year.
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)!
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:
Races begin at 6pm sharp and will be held rain or shine. Signup and timing will follow the summer track series procedure. Sign in on the roster/waiver form before running, then record your time at the end. We''ll have a donation bucket, with a requested offering of $1 per evening. We'll have water, but please bring your own bottle or cup to fill.
Runners who complete a race in all four meets will earn a “letter” in XC, presented at the club’s spring awards banquet.

The 2017 edition of Godiva's Summer Track Series will resume with a long night schedule at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 28th at our new home, Githens Middle School, 4800 Old Chapel Hill Road, Durham.
