Naumkeag 5K

June 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am

Salem today would be almost unrecognizable to its seventeenth-century settlers. The magnificent feats of risk and development that took place over a short 400 years drastically changed the city. With a keen eye, some leg power, and a bit of imagination, remnants of this past can still be found. Come with us on a journey to rediscover old Salem, and learn about the globally impactful events and ideas that created this city. nNaumkeag 5k:nExperience Salem in 5k. Covering the Native American origins, first European settlers, and the city’s original layout; this run takes you to some of the oldest areas of Salem. Intended for runners of all levels; there are 5 stops along the route to learn about key locations, people, and moments of Salem’s origin (each with a chance to catch your breath). Led by local architect & HSI Board member Vijay Joyce. nMeeting place: Lappin Park, on the corner of Washington & Essex Streets nLearn more here. n Source: https://www.salem.org/event/naumkeag-5k/
