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.
