The Carolina Godiva Track Club is proud to host the Umstead Trail Marathon. Now in our 20th year. All 26.2 miles of the marathon will be run on the scenic trails of William B. Umstead State Park, a five thousand-acre tract of dense woods, lakes, streams, hills, that rests between the cities of Raleigh, Cary, and Durham. This is a challenging race with hills, some single-track and runnable bridle trails. There is a six-hour cut off.


Course Consists of roughly 5 miles of single track and the rest on runnable crushed gravel

Aid Stations

Aid stations are encountered every 2-4 miles

The approximate locations are 3.5, 5.5, 8.2, 10, 13.1, 14.8, 16.6, 19.7, 21.5, 24.1.

The 3.5/8.2 station moves to 21.5 and 24.1.

This isn't an ultra, but we want to make sure the runners have plenty of nutrition on course. Aid stations will have water, energy drink, energy gels, as well as some food (fruits, salty snacks, sweet snacks) and coke.

Refund Policy

No refunds will be issued for any reason. This includes if the race is cancelled due to inclement weather, or other factors that deem Umstead Park not safe for hosting the event. We also do not offer bib transfers or deferments for the following year.

Race Swag

All registered runners receive a t-shirt, post-race meal, and a post-race craft beer (off-site at the Gizmo Brewery).

Finishers receive a unique pint glass featuring the 2024 race logo
