Let’s hustle to prevent heart disease!
Run, walk, or race on streets of scenic Salem Oregon.
Please join Gallagher Fitness Resources, Salem Health, New Balance, the City of Salem and the expansive list of sponsors listed below as we host nearly 2,000 runners and walkers on the streets and in neighborhoods of Salem. We need people, businesses, and organizations willing to support this event and work with us toward a larger goal of health and wellness in our community.
The High Street Hustle 8k 5k 1k is the largest race held in Salem, and a blueprint for a community coming together to get healthy. Besides the benefit to our neighbors and friends, the proceeds from the race will go to enhanced heart disease prevention and education in Marion and Polk counties.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States. Last year's event raised nearly $30,000 to help prevent it locally.
From State Capitol Building up High Street and back! For a second year, the streets are completely closed to vehicular traffic. See the Course Maps links below.
70's Costume Theme
As you can tell by the logo, we’re throwin it back to the 70’s! We encourage you to dig up something groovy, and walk, jog, run, race or just “keep on truckin” in some far-out threads through the streets of scenic Salem, Oregon.
A post-race party and ceremony will include awards for the most inspired looks from the 70’s generation. There may even be Elvis sightings. Special Guest Appearance for 2016 is being planned! Thank you Enlightened Theatrics of Salem.
