1st Witches Run a HUGE Success

The 1st Annual Salem Witches 5K Run & Children's Mile took place on Halloween morning at Salem Hills High School, and as race directors, we couldn't have been more pleased with how things went! Thanks to all of you who raced, and an especially BIG THANKS goes to all the parents, police officers, friends and strangers who helped out in so many ways to make it a great race! We couldn't have done it without you!

We had about 150 runners present on this BEAUTIFUL fall morning to run. We enjoyed seeing all your smiling faces as you crossed the finish line--especially all of you in your costumed apparel! We had some great costumes!

The overall winners (and winners of $50 gift certificates to MVP Sports) were Tyler Gebert in the men's race and Kaetlin Bracken in the women's race. Great Job to both! If you'd like to look at the race results, click HERE.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year, on October 30th, 2010--same time, same place, same fun!

First, may we introduce ourselves. We are the Salem Hills High School Cross Country team in Salem, UT.
