2019 CHURCH TAVERN CHALLENGE
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Kids 1K are getting closer.
Registration for the 2019 St. John’s Parish Labor Day Church Tavern Challenge
5K/10K/1Mile Run/Walk presented by Domino Sugar is now open on the running
The Challenge features races to appeal to everyone from the serious runner to
families who just want a fun day together, and this year adds a 1 Mile event to the
returning 5K, 10K and Kids 1K. The traditional tankards will be awarded to firstplace male and female finishers in each race, with other prizes for top finishers in
various age groups.
Beginning an hour earlier than last year’s Challenge, the first starting bell will ring
at 8:30am on Monday, September 2. Runners (and walkers) will wind through
the hills and country lanes of South Salem, New York, starting and finishing at St.
John’s Church on Spring Street, where a delicious barbecue and liquid refreshment
will await the competitors and their families.
In addition to celebrating Labor Day and encouraging fitness in our community,
the event raises money to help with the outstanding work of the Community
Center of Northern Westchester and the continued work of the parish.
Event chairperson Matt Shue describes the Challenge as “a perfect set of races,
where you can be as competitive or as laid-back as you wish. The point is to get out
in the fresh air, have a great time and contribute to a good cause.”
Cost is $30 per runner or walker for the 5K and 10K races, $15 for the 1 Mile run
and $10 per child (12 and under) for the 1K fun run. On site day-of registration is
