Saturday, July 10, 2021 – 3k & 5K Family Fun Run

Sign Up!

As public gathering and social distances continue to be uncertain in the coming months, we are planning a modified, in-person Race to Save the Harvest allowing participants to walk, run, hop, skip, or jump their way along the course safely. All funds earned will be used by Salem Harvest to gather fresh produce from area farms and backyards that would go to waste and make it available for hungry families in the Willamette Valley.

Three things are being done to accomplish this in-person event:

1) The race will be held at Minto-Brown Island park, the largest park in Salem, to minimize course overlap and maximize space around participants.
2) The 3k and 5k courses will be two different loops with two different start points. Both start points will be near Parking Lot 3.
3) The start of the races will be staggered. Participants will begin the race at different times within a 15 minute window between 9:30am and 10:30am. During the registration process, you will be asked to choose a time for starting your race. Because the races will be staggered, there will be no official timing.

Other things to look forward to:

  • Every participant registered before June 28, 2021 will receive a race t-shirt.
  • The annual participants only raffle will be happening with 5 great prizes you will want to win:
    -Starbucks baskets including mug, three pounds of coffee beans, and a gift card (x3)
    -Bed Bath and Beyond basket with gift card and other essentials
    -Kids' summertime fun bundle
  • Ima Blueberry will be in attendance, cheering, and passing out blueberry love. How could we have a Race to Save the Harvest without Ima!

Adults- $20, Kids- $12 Prices will increase on June 28 so sign up early.
