“Authentic tamales, tangy salsa, live music, beer, Mexican culture, and lots of enthusiasm paired with the beautiful course along Salem Riverfront Park and Minto-Brown Park. It will be a perfect day!”
“Tamale Trot will be the highlight of your running season!”
Anyone who says it’s no fun to run has probably never participated in the Tamale Trot 5k/10k to benefit Friends of Pimpollo! The 3rd annual run and walk event is coming back to Salem, Oregon on Saturday, October 19th, 2019 at the Salem Riverfront Park to support Friends of Pimpollo (pronounced pim-poy-o), a cause that is dear to our hearts. In fact, Bentley’s Grill is delighted to join The Grand Hotel in Salem and many other outstanding Salem businesses to sponsor this year’s race.
The event will feature live music, delicious Mexican food and plenty of fun! Runners will be treated to live music along the course to keep things fun and lively along with a finisher’s medal and a post-race party complete with awards and live music!
