The Salem Half Marathon is a new race to the Roanoke Valley and Salem whose mission is to encourage people to get outside and get physically active. The scenic race is a Tour of Salem in which you will run through all the sights & sounds of our beautiful city. The race starts on Main Street, takes you through beautiful Roanoke College, quaint neighborhoods, on the popular Roanoke Greenway, two different sports complexes, then finishes on Main Street with all your family & friends cheering you. This race will be something that you don’t want to miss! After the race, join the party! There will be live entertainment, food, & drinks at the finish line festival. Our very own local craft beer, Parkway Brewery, will be supplying the suds. Each racer (over 21 years old) will receive a free beer.
