Get Involved

We have numerous ways for you be involved in the LewisGale Salem Half Marathon! Whether you're a runner or spectator there are options to allow you to be a part of race day!

Ambassador Program

The LewisGale Salem Half Marathon is excited to start a new Running Ambassador Program! Running Ambassadors are people that have run our race or are interested in our race and have a following on social media. We depend on word-of-mouth marketing as one way to spread the word about this race. By using Ambassadors, we can encourage more people from around the region to come try out the LewisGale Salem Half Marathon! Follow the link for more information.


If you are not planning to run in the LewisGale Half Marathon or Virginia's Blue Ridge 8K but want to contribute in another way, we have many opportunities for you to help. We are always in search of people looking to help us make this race a success.

We hope that you will join us October 13th, 2018 as a volunteer and join the army of citizens who contribute to put this race together.  For runners and visitors it’s the volunteers that help ensure a safe and fun event. Sign up to be a volunteer here!

Charity Page

The LewisGale Salem Half Marathon partners with the Salem Food Pantry by giving back part of its proceeds every year. We have created a fundraising page that will allow runners and supporters to give back as well. Please consider giving a donation to the Salem Food pantry today by clicking here.
