G&H Contracting Kids Run

Is your child interested in running? Want to encourage your child to exercise? We have just the race for you! Sign your child up for the G&H Contracting Kids Run today.  

NEW this year, we have a two mile option for the kids!  Choose the distance that is appropriate for your child- one mile or two. The Kids Fun Run one mile course starts & finishes at the Salem Farmers Market on Main Street. Your child will race up and down Main Street. The two mile course follows the same route as the main field up to Academy Street, then turns back towards Main Street to the finish line.  Kids running this option should be prepared for a few hills! This will surely be a great experience for your child and get them outdoors! 

The Kids Fun Run is Presented by:
