The Deal

  • $19.99 for entry for a team of up to four into the Great Salem Race on Saturday, August 17 at 10 a.m. (a $35 value)

Teams follow clues in an Amazing Race-style gambol for the top spot. The scavenger hunt begins and ends at the South Courtyard of the Salem Convention Center. Entrants can compete in teams of 2-4 players.

The Great Salem Race

Urban scavengers take to the streets of Salem to solve clues and complete challenges in The Great Salem Race. The third-annual scavenger hunt takes competitors through a 3- to 5-mile course—the length depends on the route competitors take and how efficiently they solve the clues—during which they will discover or re-discover some of Salem's finest sites and businesses. Most teams will complete the course by 1 p.m., after which they can enjoy food and drink specials at the official after-party. Proceeds to benefit Issac's Room of Salem, Salem Leadership Foundation and the Inspire Foundation.

Thanks for offering the groupon! We would not have known about the event without it. We had a great time and plan to do it again next year. This is a great event and we will tell our friends about it too.
