Cancellation & Deferals


Entry fees are non-refundable. Race numbers and entries cannot be transferred to another person. No exceptions. This means once we have received your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate and you may not give or sell your number or timing tag to anyone else. Anyone found participating with another person’s number will be disqualified and both people will be barred from future Salem Half Marathon & 8K events.

If you are unable to participate and would like your race shirt mailed to you, there is a $5 cost to do so. Checks (made payable to "Salem Parks & Recreation") can be mailed to us at the following address:

Salem Parks & Recreation
620 Florida Ave
Salem, VA 24153

Weather Policy

The race will be run rain or shine. In case of severe weather, we will postpone the race until the weather has passed and we believe the safety of our participates will not be at risk. 

If you have any questions about this policy, please feel free to give us a call at 540-375-3057.
