About Godiva

Do you like to run? Are you interested in meeting other people in the Research Triangle area who share your interest? If so, you're in the right place.

Founded in 1975, Godiva Track Club has over 450 members of all ages and abilities, and welcomes new members.

Godiva offers an annual program for those who are new or returning to the sport.  The club presents popular running events like  the Umstead Trail Marathon. Godiva's annual calendar also features weekly summer track meets, and a winter series of cross country runs. There are regularly scheduled group runs most days of the week.

Please check out more reasons to join Godiva, and either sign up on line or mail us a membership form.

Oh yes, one more thing:  You may wonder why we're called the Godiva Track Club.  Here's the story.


Godiva's annual program for new runners will launch with a kickoff meeting on Monday, March 16th at Durham's South Regional Library.  Training will begin  on the following Saturday, March 21st,  and will culminate with a 5k race on June 6th.  Please visit the Running Start 2015 page for details, including a link to register.

Here's the schedule for the entire 31st Annual Godiva Track Club Winter Series. All races begin at 10:00 am, except for the New Year's Day Run which starts at 1:00 pm.

Ronnie Weed's explanation of the Run for the Donuts rules is a mouthful. Watch the video shot by Shannon Johnstone.
