Salem Park, Recreation & Community Services Road Race Series 2013

The Salem Race Series gives runners a chance to experience a wide variety of seasonal events, from the chill of January to the heat of August, from a one mile run to a half-marathon, from a flat course to a hilly cross-country challenge. All races start and finish in Salem and support The City of Salem Recreation programs for all ages, as well as other local charities, so your hard work will not only be rewarded, but will supplement continuing programs such as this in the future.

The 6th annual Salem Race Series will be a blast to the past!
