Salem Community Theater to Host 5K Run/WalkThe Salem Community Theater and the SCHS Thespian Society are hosting their 4th annual 5K Run and Walk on Saturday, October 5th, at Bryan Park Nature Trail adjacent to Salem Township Hospital. The event begins at 8am and packet pickup begins at 7am.
The theme of this years run is "Running for Office", adapted from the Salem High Thespian Society's Fall Play, "Mandate for Murder", taking place between October 3rd and October 6th at the Salem Theater. Thespian members dressed in costumes from the play, a comical political mystery/murder, will cheer runners and walkers to the finish line.
Entries for the 5K Run/Walk can be picked up at Salem Township Hospital's reception desks, the Salem Chamber of Commerce, and at City Hall. Early entry fee is $15 dollars. Entry fee on the day of the race will be $20. Children 12 and under can participate in the half-mile fun run for an early registration fee of $10, with a day-of registration fee of $15. Awards will be presented for both adults and children.
All those who register prior to September 23rd will receive a T-Shirt commemorating the event.
