It was another successful year for Salem Young Professional’s Great Salem Race, the ultimate scavenger hunt where teams (some in costume) race 3-5 miles around the city in 3 hours.
Nearly 100 teams of 2-4 people (up from 35 in 2012) gathered early Saturday morning at the Salem Convention Center then raced their way around the city solving clues and completing challenges.
We are so proud of Tyler, Justin , Dallas & Brendan from Bentley’s Grill who dressed as the hilarious team from the movie “Anchorman” and won Second Place in the Team Division (not too shabby!).
Our friends at The Salem Conference Center also scored big in the 2013 race, taking First Place in the Costume Division and Third Place in Team Division! Way to go Amber, Sarah, Brandon, & Timmy! (Ahem- we would like to remind everyone that Team Bentley’s Grill Dominated the “Best Costume” category in the 2012 race).
