Salem Half Marathon
The City of Salem, known as "Virginia's Championship City", has hosted numerous NCAA National Championships as well as many other national and international sports tournaments. In 2016, it was decided to branch out and bring that "Championship" mentality to running!
The races start and finish at the Salem Farmers Market in downtown Salem, VA, and take you on a scenic tour of Salem through neighborhoods, Roanoke College, and the Roanoke River Greenway.
