Salisbury Rowan Runners - Prediction Run 5K - presented by Ralph Baker's Shoes and Chick-Fil-A at Towne Creek Commons!

Back by popular demand!!!  All Salisbury Rowan Runners Club members (current as of August 26, 2023) are invited to join us!  

To those of you who haven’t heard of a prediction run, here’s how it works. All SRR member participants, any age or gender, will make a prediction on how fast they will run/walk a 5K course around City Lake.

We’ll use the old First Methodist Missions 5K course (see map below), including three laps around the lake. At the starting line or before, any participant must remove their watch and phone and not receive any time coaching from anyone along the course. No finish line clocks will be used.  Finish times will be posted after the race.

The participant that comes closest to their predicted time will win a free pair of running shoes from Ralph Baker's Shoes.  2nd place will receive free entry to 2024 Winter Flight 8k/5k (2-4-24)!  3rd place will receive free entry to the Santa Run 5K (12-9-23)!

We’ll have free breakfast provided by Chick-Fil-A (did someone say chicken minis!?) along with fruit and water following the run!! 

Registration Options:

Current Salisbury Rowan Runners members can register for free!

If you are not a current Salisbury Rowan Runners member, you can register individually for $30 or as a family for $45 (this price covers all immediate household members), which includes a one-year membership in the Salisbury Rowan Runners Club (SRR). Membership in our club will afford you the opportunity to be part of a dedicated, encouraging, informative and experienced local running family. And if that is not enough, additional SRR Club benefits include a club T-shirt, monthly newsletter, volunteer opportunities, club fun runs (like this prediction run), annual meeting and dinner, and year-end awards. A 15% discount at Ralph Baker Shoes and a 10% discount at Back Country and Beyond in Salisbury is offered to SRR members!!

This is a fun, low key opportunity to get together for a timed 5K and fellowship with fellow club members. Salisbury Parks and Recreation is our partner in providing this event.

Please arrive in time to check in before the Prediction 5K. It will start on time at 8:30 a.m. Parking is available at the City Park lot and along the street.  Check in at the large shelter right below the City Park building (shelter marked on map below).
