OctoberTour 5K race
This year, not only will visitors be able to stroll through Historic Salisbury Foundation’s annual showcase of historic homes, they’ll be able to run through it.
The foundation is adding a 5K run to events surrounding its annual OctoberTour of Homes.
The inaugural OT5K, which at 8 a.m. on Oct. 10, “will show preservation at its finest as runners stride through our historic town and witness these continuing efforts” to preserve and protect historic buildings, a press release said.
“The course meanders through tree-covered roads, showing off our West Square and Fulton Heights Historic Districts.”
As an effort to promote sustainability and community awareness, the foundation has created a 3.1-mile course filled with architecture, history, antiques and restoration. The event, which starts at the corner of Monroe and Fulton streets, also includes a fun run. For course and race registration, visit www.historicsalisbury.org.
The weekend of Oct. 10-11 features Historic Salisbury Foundation’s Annual OctoberTour of Homes and Bank Street Activities, Livingstone College Homecoming Parade and the Jazz and Blues Festival.
