Carolina Godiva Track Club

News and Announcements

The Godiva Cross Country Series returns through the month of September, but like much else, it will be different this year. Like summer track, the XC series will be a do it yourself affair, with a system to report your results online.

We will still offer the alternating venues between Finley XC Trail @ Chapel Hill and Al Buehler Trail @ Durham, but you'll also be able to choose a 5, 8, or 10k of your own if those locations don't work for you. So if you want to map out a cross country worthy route at Umstead State Park,  or along some other trail, go for it.

Results:  Week 1 (8/31), Week 2 (9/7), Week 3 (9/14), Week 4 (9/21), Week 5 (9/28)

Plans are underway for Godiva's annual Winter Series, which will kick off with the Run for the Donuts in October. We'll need to make modifications to some of the usual race formats and schedules to comply with public health rules this season.  Watch this space and the October newsletter for details we will release very soon.

OHour Runver sixty runners participated in the annual Godiva One Hour Run on Saturday, August 15th.  We held this year's Hour Run in a socially distanced format, with participants doing their runs throughout the Triangle and beyond. Here are the results.
