This is a well-supported 50k, 25k, or 50k relay around beautiful Salem Lake in the outskirts of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The race begins and ends at the new marina/office in 4000 (HEATED) square feet overlooking the lake. Wear distinct colors and have your fans bring binoculars to spot you across the lake. If the weather is warmer than the 11 degrees it's been in the past, the large deck area provides ample seating, views, food and music.
The course is a loop around Salem Lake (7 miles) with an out-and-back trail add-on so that each loop is 12.5k. You will run on a wide rolling dirt trail around the wooded shoreline of Salem Lake with a small portion on a paved bike path along Salem Creek. This is a very spectator-friendly event. The average temperature in early January is a high of 49 and a low of 29.
The 50K finish line will stay open until 3:00 pm (7 hours).
