Chase Shermer has been running for 12 years. Ultimately when he was in 6th grade, his dad challenged him to a three mile race and his dad beat him, bad so that’s when Chase decided to start running. Also, he didn’t make the soccer team at school... Chase moved to the Asheville area in the Summer of 2012 to further his education at Mars Hill University. Before that, he lived in Knightdale, NC which is just outside of Raleigh. His favorite race he's done is the 1500m at Duke, which he ran during his senior year of college. It was in this race where he ran his PR there of 4:01. Pets wise, he has a cat and a dog. The cat lives with him but the dog lives with his parents. Growing up in Raleigh, he went to North Raleigh Christian Academy and ended up at Mars Hill University for college. Chase says what makes him, him, is being able to get out there every day and work hard no matter what he's working at. He tries to put the best effort he can into each and everything he does, whether it's running, work, or school.
