Important Details

Race Description

The #Run4Greenway is an event to raise awareness about the Downtown Greenway, be a fundraiser for the Downtown Greenway and provide a fun-filled evening for the whole family. It consists of a 4 mile run, 1 mile walk/run, and a big party in Cumberland Park located beside the new Innovation Cornerstone on the Downtown Greenway at Lindsay and Murrow with live entertainment, food trucks, and activities for adults and children.

The Downtown Greenway is a planned 4 mile walking and biking trail that will enhance and define downtown Greensboro. This project will enhance the urban landscape with a green space that will encourage economic development, promote fitness, inspire alternative transportation, and provide connections between Greensboro neighborhood residents around the city. The proceeds from the Run 4 the Greenway will go towards construction and maintenance to supplement the City’s maintenance of the Downtown Greenway upon completion.

A ribbon cutting for the newly completed Innovation Cornerstone at Lindsay and Murrow will take place prior to the Run 4 the Greenway. Go to the Downtown Greenway website for more information.

This event will be timed using a bibtag timing chips. The timing chip will be on the back of the run number. This will not need to be turned back in after the race – it is disposable. It will be a chip time start. That means your time will not start until you reach the start timing mat. Make sure your number is clearly visible on the front of your body. Chip Time is the time your chip crossed the start timing mat. The awards for this event are based on Chip Time.
