Please join us this Saturday, May 30th for the CGTC Virtual Awards Banquet! 

We will be having a pre-banquet remote group run, which you can sign up for in advance in order to have your live results posted to a results page. If you'd rather run earlier in the day, you can do that instead and add your results. Results can be added automatically via your Strava account or manually.

Then, we will have our regular Awards Banquet! You'll join us for the Banquet (as well as the pre-race gather) via Zoom.

All Comers Summer “Track” is back, sort of, for ten weeks beginning on Monday, June 1st. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to meet up and we don’t have access to a track. So here is the plan.

We're hosting some unique races this season to provide motivation and connection during the current shutdown of public events. Check back here or on our Facebook discussion page for announcements about possible future runs.

CGTC Persistence Social Distance 6 Hour Marathon - April 18th
CGTC Cinco de Mayo 5 Miler and 5K - May 5th
Persistence Social Distance 12-Hour Run/Relay - May 9th

Thanks to Anthony Corriveau and Shannon Johnstone for organizing these runs.


The 1001 Mile Challenge is a new Godiva initiative for 2020 to encourage an increased commitment to exercise along with some friendly competition. As a Godiva member, you can enroll in the challenge and keep track of your intentional completed miles, regardless of pace, throughout the calendar year. We'll provide online tracking of monthly and overall progress.

CGTC 1001 Mile ChallengeAll participants who complete 1001 or more miles by the end of the year will receive an official certificate and a finisher surprise! We will also declare a 1001 Mile Challenge Champion at the end of the year.
