Race Preview: 2019 Capital FC Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K Runs (Salem)

Capital Futbol Club is back at it again with their annual half marathon, 10K and 5K races. These races have a special place in my heart due to the fact that I grew up playing soccer with the club, back when it was called Salem United Soccer Club and before they even had their own fields. Now, as an adult, I have friends coaching and managing the club with all of the race proceeds going to keep the non profit afloat and keeping kids in the community engaged in the sport.

The run starts at the clubs complex in East Salem off of State Street and takes you through the vast farmland and hills that surround the area. The run has approximately 300 feet of elevation gain for the half marathon. As is customary with runs here in Oregon, once you finish there will be delicious craft beer and music to help you unwind after the race. Packet pickup will be available on race day (June 2nd) from 6:45AM to 7:45AM or at Gallagher Fitness Resources on Friday, May 31st from 2PM to 6PM.
