SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2017, 11:00 a.m.

Mental wellness is serious business but that doesn’t mean we can’t have one heck of a time while we contribute and learn!  Shea’s Chase 5K Run/Walk is about participation, community, education, exercise, caring, and FUN.

Can an 11 a.m. start be any more accommodating?

Since most of our participants from last year’s race really enjoyed the route we have decided to use the same race course again this year! The competitive runners will receive priority start positions and prizes by age category for guys and gals. Casual runners and walkers will hopefully, once again, enjoy the many perspectives of a course that is attractive, interesting and varied. Everyone will enjoy live music along the way as well as numerous reminders of the importance of rails and trains to the city’s infrastructure and, most importantly, everyone will enjoy a safe route, well marked and well manned by Greensboro’s finest and event volunteers.

We have also added three new age categories for our younger participants who were very impressive last year and definitely deserve some recognition!
