2021 Race Info

Race details for 2021 are currently in planning stages.  Race registration, pricing, packet pickup, and race day information will be updated as plans are finalized.  Please check back for updates.

Details shown below are from the 2020 race and may not be relevant for the 2021 race. 




The 2020 Salem Lake Trail Runs will be held on Saturday, October 24 and race registration will open on Monday, September 1 at 6:00 am.  Registration will be capped at 400 participants total for the combined 7 Mile and 30K races. There will not be a 5K race this year. Participants will be divided into start waves of no more than the allowable number of people per NC and local regulations on the day of the race.  Wave staging areas will be kept separate from each other and participants are not allowed in or near waves they are not assigned to. Race wave logistics will be designed to facilitate social distancing before and during the race start. 

Participants are required to wear a mask when not running, including the time waiting in waves for the race start.  Masks should not be removed until the participant begins to run.

Participants will be asked for an approximate race time for similar distance races during registration for use in wave assignments.  30K participants are asked to enter an approximate half marathon race time.  7-mile participants are asked to enter an approximate 10K race time. 

Participants are encouraged to bring their own water/sports drink. There will be water and sports drink available in 3 places on the race course. 

Several other precautions will be put into place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic so that we are compliant or better than government regulations and following the best advice of public health experts.

Registration will close at midnight on Monday, October 19. You must preregister to participate.  No race day registration.

Come join us for the 30k (18.6 miles) or 7 mile run on the beautiful, mostly shaded, wooded trail surrounding Salem Lake.  Enjoy a well-organized event that is a great tune up for marathons held later in the year.  The course has been listed as one of America's best running trails and part of the proceeds benefit the Salem Lake Trail System.  Register early to be sure of a place.

T-shirts are guaranteed to those who registered by October 5. This will be a long-sleeve tech shirt in male/female sizes.

A portion of the proceeds will go to support the trails and facilities at Salem Lake
