More than a race: It’s an event.

Mark your calendars! Salem’s September 10k is back this year and it’s bigger than ever! It’s a race and a party, all in one, right in downtown Salem and it benefits YMCA of The North Shore!

Come downtown on Sunday morning prepared to run a fun 10k course with your friends. Then get ready to relax at the Run Fest with vendor tents, cold Notch Brewing Beer, and live music from one of our favorite bands: Surnames. Each bib includes a ticket for your first beer, then you’re free to purchase more for just $6 per beer. Non-alcoholic beers available as well. If you have some friends who want to hang out but don’t run, no worries! They can buy a fest-only ticket and come soak up the vibes with you. Prizes for fastest runners, age groups, and team awards!

Course Information

The course is a mostly flat cruise out to Salem Willows, back through downtown, out to Forest River Park, then finishing at Notch Brewing for the festival!


There is a parking garage at the corner of Derby and Congress with metered parking. If you are coming from outside Salem, we highly recommend taking the Commuter Rail if possible. It's a quick jog from the train station to the race. You may also park at the MBTA lot for a small fee even if you are not taking the train. This is a great option. For more info, see the City's parking page:
