West Salem High School Spring Fling 5K and 1K Fun Run takes place Saturday, May 21st from the WSHS football field. This community event starts and finishes at the high school track and takes advantage of the neighborhood and a local park near the school. Organized by the Academic Boosters, all levels of runners and walkers are invited to come out to celebrate spring.
Register for the 5K for $25 through May 11th to make sure you get a race shirt. The 1K is free, but still requires registration. Sign up online through May 20th or register at packet pick-up on May 20th from 3:00-6:00 pm at the commons area in the school. Day of packet pick-up is available from 7:00-8:45 am. West Salem High School is at 1776 Titan Drive NW in Salem. Parking will be limited at the high school, so get there early. Additional parking will also be available at Chapman Hill Elementary School (1500 Doaks Ferry Road NW) and Straub Middle School (1920 Wilmington Ave. NW), both schools that are within walking distance of the high school
There will be a race clock keeping track of time, but this run is not officially chip timed. The course promises some hills, some spring color and lots of fun. The kaleidoscope of colors will be from start to finish. Face painting, a chalk drawing contest and color ‘flinging’ after the run guarantee a fun and bright event. Participants can purchase extra chalk packets to fling at one another during the festivities. A Zumba warm-up will get everyone ready to run/walk at 8:45 am. The 1K starts at 9:00 am, the 5K Run/Walk starts at 9:30 am and the Color Flinging Celebration will be at 10:30 am in the activity area outside of the stadium gates.
