A little about us…

Our founder, Karen Hubbs, began her career at the Johnson City Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) as the Sports Marketing Director.  During that time, Karen recruited National Championships as well as other athletic events to Johnson City which brought economic impact to the community.  While at the Johnson City CVB, Karen joined a few community fitness leaders to create the Bluegrass Half Marathon which ignited her passion for road races.  In 2013, Karen took a leap of faith and began The Goose Chase.  Since that time, she and her team have worked with several non-profits and organizations to create many fun events for the region including a marathon, three half marathons, obstacle course races, 5k’s, mile races and most recently the Tri-Cities Walking Challenge.
