The 18th Annual Umstead Trail Marathon is on March 5, 2022, and we need your help. Why should you volunteer?
- You make a difference being out there. The runners consistently praise the Umstead Marathon for having some of the best volunteers around. A smile and a little bit of cheering goes a long way.
- The Umstead Marathon race has given over $30K to the Umstead Coalition since its inception. It also provides funds for the Carolina Godiva Track Club throughout the year.
- It's fun! You get to enjoy being in the great outdoors with other like-minded people.
We need over 100 volunteers to put on a successful race. This is CGTC's largest fundraiser. To keep membership costs and event costs low, we rely on the proceeds from the Umstead Marathon. Please consider spending March 5, 2022 in beautiful Umstead State Park supporting the runners, the Umstead Coalition, and the Carolina Godiva Track Club.
Registration for the Umstead Trail Marathon opens Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 8AM EDT.
The fee is $80 if you register before January of 2022.
This year's Godiva Annual Pizza Party was an online get together on Tuesday evening, December 8th. We reviewed the happenings of this year unlike any other, introduced our new club Vice President Kevin Rumsey, and passed off the baton from Ariana Bevilacqua to our new president Susie Castellanos Hansley in an epic fashion. Susie compiled a video of past Godiva leaders from across our 45 year history all the way back to founders David Royle, the first Godiva president, and his friend and immediate successor Roland Rust. Above, David holds up a vintage Godiva singlet in the middle of his pass; view the entire video to see our him and the long line of presidents who've kept Godiva moving forward across five decades.
