11:00 a.m.

Shea’s Chase began as a way to promote mental wellness through exercise and conversation.  We want to bring our community together for a day of fun while spreading awareness of a serious issue.

Our start time is 11:00 AM because we are not morning people!

Our race course for 2017 has changed since several of the local neighborhoods are tired of having their streets closed.  We can’t say we blame them! The new route is similar, has some better footing and you will still enjoy an attractive, interesting and varied course.  The competitive runners will receive priority start positions and there will be live music to enjoy along the way. The route will be well marked by volunteers cheering you on and well manned by our dedicated Greensboro city police.
