All Paces Welcome! Walkers too!

Explore Downtown Greensboro and over 25 of it’s beautiful surrounding neighborhoods as well as 4 of Greensboro’s awesome greenways.  Each week we’ll explore a different area of the city. The week prior to the run, you’ll learn lots of historical information about the area in which you’ll run. For example, did you know Vicks Vapo Rub was created in Downtown Greensboro? Did you know there is a complete intact mill village still in Greensboro?

Worried about getting lost? No need to. We have RunTheBoro Pace Guide leaders who do an awesome job leading runners at their given pace through each week’s route.  There are Pace Guide Leaders for Walkers all the way to the speedy runners at an 8:00 pace. So, there’s room for everyone at RunTheBoro. Worried you can’t make the distance? No need to worry. Each week we have a shorter 4-5 mile route and a longer 8-10 mile route.

And the best part is it’s FREE!!
