Wicomico Recreation, Parks & Tourism is bringing back the Hidden Treasures Half Marathon & 5K for its third year. This NYC Qualifying event will take place in Salisbury, MD on Sunday, September 9, 2012. The scenic, fun and flat route will pass through Salisbury City Park, the beautiful Salisbury University campus and onto Riverside Drive. Early registration discounts are available until July 31.
In addition to a great time, runners will receive a participation award, event goodie bag and a dry-tech event shirt (while supplies last). Cash prizes will be presented to the top 3 male and female finishers of the Half Marathon, and other medals and door prizes will be awarded for each age group. A Post-Race block party will also take place at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center to celebrate a successful run. The celebration will include live entertainment, a “Taste of Salisbury” provided by the Locally Owned Restaurant Association (LORA) and adult beverages. All race participants will receive food and drink while guests and spectators will be able to purchase food and drinks from on-site vendors.
