About The LewisGale Salem Half Marathon, 8K and Kids Fun Run

The LewisGale Salem Half Marathon, 8K, and Kids Fun Run is a must for any half marathon enthusiast! Taking place on 1st October 2024 in Salem, Virginia, this race promises an unforgettable experience filled with stunning scenery and a sense of championship.

Starting and finishing at the Salem Farmers Market in downtown Salem, runners will embark on a picturesque journey through Salem’s charming neighborhoods, Roanoke College, and the scenic Roanoke River Greenway. With every step, participants will get to soak in the beauty of this championship city.

This event is organized by Blue Ridge Racing, renowned for their expertise in managing road races. This partnership ensures runners a seamless and well-organized race experience from start to finish. Blue Ridge Racing is also responsible for organizing the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon, known as “America’s Toughest Road Marathon,” adding even more prestige to the event.

One of the exciting features of the LewisGale Salem Half Marathon is the opportunity to win the coveted Virginia’s Blue Ridge Triple Crown race medal. By completing the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Full or Half Marathon in April and the Star City Half Marathon in November, participants become eligible for this prestigious award. However, if three half marathons seem daunting, runners can still earn the Triple Crown Sprint Series medal by participating in the Blue Ridge Star-K (or Relay), Salem 8K, and Star City 10K.

October is a fantastic time to visit Salem, as the weather is typically mild and pleasant for running. With crisp autumn air and beautiful fall foliage, runners will be greeted by a truly enchanting environment throughout the race.
