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 yearly donations to several middle-and high-school running programs. ShadowChase has founded the Teens Run Modesto program and the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon. 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 also have a walking group to start with if you are a beginning runner or walker.


We are no longer accepting new races for our timing services as our calendar is full. Although, we do have equipment necessary for hosting events available for rent.
