About This Activity

Every day that you wake up on this side of the ground is a gift. And running and walking is a daily celebration of the gift. It’s a commitment to your health. The Run’ucopia celebrates this. This is not a gaudy race that makes you buy t-shirts and clogs your closet with SWAG. It is a tradition of friends, family and competitors. At its very core, running is about pushing yourself to new heights, new records, and charting your progress along the journey.
For some, just getting off the couch is a major victory. For others, maintaining a certain pace is cause for celebration. All are welcome. Everyone has to run (or walk) their own race, but the need to keep improving and having fun is a constant force.
Steve Prefontaine said it best. “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” Happy Thanksgiving, and have a great run. Here are the details:
Music, cowbell, good times… Run’ucopia is a Salem tradition. Bring your family and friends and engage in some healthy activity before your feast. Consider this your “appetite development.”
