The 5K race is a gentle upslope out and a quick downslope starting and ending in front of the Greenwich Central Middle School. The 10K (NEW ROUTE!) follows the same course out and makes the turn with the 5K course, but then meanders through the tree lined streets in the village of Greenwich.

First place male and female runners in both the 5K and the 10K receive a truly unique trophy—the vaunted Dux Deke's Decoy.

Water and light refreshments available before and after the race.

A portion of the proceeds supports the Greater Greenwich Chamber of Commerce Scholarship for Greenwich Central School.

Battle of the Bands- Salem- 5 to 9 p.m. at RS Taylor Sons and Brewery in Hebron.  Introducing the Salem Community Courthouse’s first Battle of the Bands Competition. The fundraiser will be held at RS Taylor Sons and Brewery in Hebron, NY on June 22nd.

 
The Salem Courthouse was built in 1869, so this year we are celebrating its 150th year of existence. The Salem Courthouse Community Center is dedicated to providing a venue for artistic endeavors, for craft making, and for unique educational experiences that help our young people to meet their full potential. We look at the present as a steppingstone to the future and give individuals a chance to enjoy and to serve the community. We celebrate our past by restoring our historic building. We have plans in the works for several restoration projects that will add to the list of projects completed in the past sixteen years. One of our main restoration priorities is the Courthouse Ceiling, parts of which have fallen due to water damage. All of the revenue from the Battle of the Bands Ticket Sales will go towards repairing the Courthouse ceiling.


This fundraiser will have food, beer, and great music. We are aiming to have about 12 bands perform, and go through three rounds, with a panel of judges deciding who the $1,000 prize should be awarded to. We hope that you will consider buying a ticket, or registering your band for what we hope to become a must-see, annual event.
We are now accepting applications for bands to perform. Message us here on Facebook, or visit our website https://salemcourthouse.org/battle-of-the-bands for more info.
