Description

Why should you decide to run the LewisGale Salem Half Marathon? Simple!  Salem is known as the "Championship City," which hosts various NCAA Championship tournaments.  We have brought that championship mentality to this race.  This course allows you to see Salem and experience why we are called the "Championship City."  

The scenic race will take you through all the sights and sounds of Salem, "Tour of Salem". This race starts on Main Street, takes you through beautiful Roanoke College, quaint neighborhoods, on the popular Roanoke Green-way, the two different sport complexes, then finish on Main Street with all your family & friends cheering you on as you finish. This race will be something that you don't want to miss!
