LewisGale Salem Half Marathon, 8K & Kids Fun Run

October 10, 2020

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, we decided to branch out and bring that “Championship” mentality to running! Our races start and finish at the Salem Farmers Market in downtown Salem, VA and takes you on a scenic tour of Salem through neighborhoods, Roanoke College, and the Roanoke River Greenway.

We have partnered with Blue Ridge Racing, the area’s leading road race management organization to produce these events. In addition to managing the LewisGale Salem Half Marathon, Virginia’s Blue Ridge 8K, and the G&H Contracting Kids Run, Blue Ridge Racing handles the race management for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon, also known as “America’s Toughest Road Marathon”.

As an added bonus to running our Salem Half Marathon, you will have the opportunity to win the Virginia’s Blue Ridge Triple Crown race medal if you also complete the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Full or Half Marathon (in April) and the Star City Half Marathon (in November) within the same year. This exciting race series rewards runners in the valley with some serious race medal bling and bragging rights!
