The 2019 edition of Godiva's Summer Track Series returns  to the Durham Academy Upper School Track  with a long night schedule on Wednesday evening, June 5th.  There will be nine meets this season, concluding on July 31st.

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

Parking Restriction in 2019:  The planned tear down of a campus building may require that the parking area down the hill nearest the playing fields be closed for use as a staging area. There should be plenty of parking in the upper section of the lot.

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!

Support Summer Track

Cost: A $2 donation per meet is appreciated, $5 per family, to help defray track rental expenses. 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 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.

Water: Runners, please bring your own water.
