- The Winter Flight Road Race was reborn on January 29, 1984. It consisted of 5 and 10-mile races, along with a 1-mile fun run. It was the largest and most successful running event ever held in the Salisbury-Rowan community. It started and ended at the Historic Wall Mural at Wachovia Bank on South Main Street. There were 758 participants in the three races including a bus load of distance runners from N.C. State University. Entry fees were $7 for the two longer races and $5 for the fun run. Long sleeve T-shirts went to all runners. The event was preceded by a spaghetti dinner and running clinic the night before with Dr. Angus McBride, Charlotte orthopedic surgeon, as guest speaker. Larry Pinkston was race director. Proceeds from the event went to the North Carolina Association for the Blind. A tour of historic Salisbury was part of the weekend events.
