- WHY ARE WE RUNNING?: RCC Salem is excited to invite you to join us for our 2nd Annual Hot Tamale 5K! Run, walk, roll, bring your kids, bring your dog, this race is for everyone. If you're feeling crazy, come on out dressed like a tamale or a taco. This is going to be a lot of fun, but most of all this is an opportunity for us to raise funds and help hungry families in Central America. Together with ENLACE, RCC Salem's global partner in Central America, we are raising funds to invest in food aid and agricultural assistance in El Salvador and Guatemala. According to a recent UN News report, hunger has quadrupled in Central America during the past two years due to an extreme COVID lockdown and several devastating hurricanes.
- YOU CAN DO THE HOT TAMALE 5K TWO WAYS: Your first option is to meet up with our group at the parking lot of the Tuscan Market on the Rail Trail at 10am on Sunday, June 5th. We will all run/walk together and enjoy doing this together safely outdoors. Or, you are welcome to make this a virtual 5K and do it on your own. If you meet up with the Rail Trail group, we will have your t-shirt waiting for your on the morning of the event. If you plan on doing the 5K virtually, you can pick up your t-shirt at church from Andrew Fross. The church is located at 2 Keewaydin Dr, Salem, NH 03079. Just email Andrew at email@example.com to coordinate a time to do the pick up.
- SPECIAL PRICING AND AWARDS FOR KIDS: We've got a discounted rate of only $25 for children ages 12 and younger. Plus, all kids will get a custom 5K medal for participating!
- REGISTER EARLY TO GUARANTEE YOURSELF A T-SHIRT: In order to guarantee yourself a t-shirt in your size, please register by Monday, May 24th.
