Color the Skies 14

Color the Skies Run in Ripon had the perfect Hot Air Balloon launching at the start of the 5k & 10k races on August 30, 2014. What could more perfect than a shoe?

Over 600 participants came out to see the Hot Air Balloons launch and stay to run on this perfect day.

Despite the warm weather it was a great day to be out and about!

ShadowChase Running Club is a non-profit organization that promotes running-and fitness-related activities in the greater Modesto area. ShadowChase has given back to the community with the purchase of four drinking fountains and donations to several middle-and high-school running programs. Year after year we make a difference in Modesto and the surrounding communities through our club activities.

Our members represent a broad range of fitness-related interests and abilities. Some jog an occasional mile, a few are accomplished marathoners. But most of us just like to get outside and run a leisurely pace. We now have a walking group to start with if you are a beginning runner or walker.


Our 2014 race calendar is full for timing services. Although, we do have equipment necessary for hosting events available for rent.

Click here for more information . Once we have confirmed availability you can download a rental contract here.

Renew or join the ShadowChase Running club by registering with See our membership tab for more information.

Our goal is to provide a family-friendly event that promotes cancer awareness and provides an exhibit area with information about cancer prevention, early detection, cancer support services, nutrition, fitness, and living a healthy lifestyle. The event gives participants a chance to honor and remember those in their lives
who have been touched by cancer. It also gives our community the opportunity to come together to show support of cancer issues and cancer survivors.
