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, 1.25 mile walk/run, and a big party in Morehead Park/Morehead Foundry located on the Downtown Greenway at 475 Spring Garden Street with live entertainment, food, and activities for adults and children. We are partnering with UNCG for their 125th Anniversary—hence the 1.25 mile run along Spring Garden Street to the UNCG Campus! New this year: Costume contest for kids, dogs and adults!

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.

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.
