The 2021 New Sarum Brewing 38th Annual Winter Flight 8K/5K and Fun will not be held on the historic course beginning at Catawba College this year. Catawba is still supporting the event, but we could not get clearance from the City of Salisbury for traffic control on the usual streets.
The new location for the event will be headquartered at the Millbridge Ruritan Building at 490 Sloan Road, Mt. Ulla, just across from Sloan Park and about eight miles from Salisbury. All the races will use an especially beautiful and scenic rural course, similar to the Santa Run 5K held each December. Participants will pass the historic Kerr Mill, built in 1824, and farmland that has been in the same dairy family for many generations.
All the races again benefit the wonderful work done by Rowan Helping Ministries in Salisbury. The course location has changed but the quality of the event has not. Meredith Abramson’s hoodie is ready to go and she has hit another home run. We will have the latest in technology again at the start and finish, wonderful refreshments, fantastic awards and more.
Statement from RHM Director, Kyna Grubb - Salisbury Rowan Runners is an amazing partner of Rowan Helping Ministries. This year has been about protocols, partnerships, prayers, and pivoting. Planning for Winter Flight and how our partners have re-imaged and overcome barriers to ensure a fun and safe run has all of these components. Winter Flight will provide much needed funds to our agency and give our community a healthy, fun, and safe opportunity to participate in this longstanding tradtion. At every turn, SRR shows up to keep us moving forward. From stepping in to prepare and serve meals in Jeannie’s Kitchen to ensuring our Runs are successful, SRR are a blessing to Rowan Helping Ministries.
Note: Due to Covid restrictions and considerations, the Annual Winter Flight Pre-Race Dinner has been cancelled for 2021 and will return in 2022.
