Small Race Preview: 2017 Bridge to Cross 5K (Salem)

Salem Catholic Schools are hosting Bridge to Cross 5K and Family Fun Run on August 26. This is your chance to race across the new Peter Courtney Bridge in Salem while helping out local Catholic schools. The following schools will benefit from the proceeds of Bridge to Cross: St. Vincent De Paul, Queen of Peace, Blanchet, St. Joseph’s, and Sacred Heart in Gervais.

The 5K is a chip-timed race starting at the amphitheater area of Salem’s Riverfront Park. Runners will cross the Peter Courtney Bridge and make their way to running paths in Minto Brown Park. The out and back course will then loop back to the start area. Dogs and strollers are not allowed on the 5K course.

The Family Fun Run will start an hour after the 5K begins and will cover part of the same course as the 5K, including running across the bridge. This race option will not be timed. Strollers are welcome for the Family Fun Run, but no pets will be allowed on this course either.

Your entry fee for either event includes a gender specific dri-fit t-shirt. Please note: Registration for Bridge to Cross closes on August 20 and there will be no day of race registration!

The Catholic Schools of Salem invite you to come run or walk Bridge to Cross; and celebrate faith, family, and fitness.
