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.

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

If you would like to have your race listed as one of the 2015 ShadowChase Grand Prix races, we are accepting applications. In order to be listed in the Grand Prix we have a fee of $100 to help off set the award expenses. Please contact us by November 30, 2014 to secure your race as one of the 2015 Grand Prix races.

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