Ready to run somewhere beautiful and new? Join fellow runners for a "running field trip" to beautiful Salem Lake Park, one of the best places to run in North Carolina! Just 1 and a half hours away from Charlotte, this runner friendly dirt trail makes a 7 mile circle around Salem Lake, right outside of downtown Winston Salem. Join us in caravaning (or drive yourself) the morning of Saturday October 20 from Concord Mills then enjoy Salem Lake's trail.
Go two loops for 14 miles, or one for 7, maybe go out and back on the second for 10 or a little extra for 16. Whatever you decide to do, the loops are great because you get back to water, bathrooms and your car before setting off again!
After a few hours of running you can change and wash up in the Marina restrooms then celebrate a good run with a delicious lunch at Foothills Brewpub around 11/11:30/12, just a 10 minute drive from the lake. They have lots of space, great beer and tasty food (plus their own runclub!).

We will need to know how many are coming as well as any available to drive. We will meet in front of Bass Pro Shops by 7am and be ready to head out then. There is a Panera Bread across the road if you want coffee, but please get it and any breakfast ahead of time so we can leave by 7.
