City Announces the First SBY Marathon

Salisbury – Mayor Jake Day is excited to announce that the City will host the first SBY Marathon on Saturday, April 28, 2018.  In an effort to encourage healthy lifestyles in the community and showcase both the City’s natural and revitalized beauty, Salisbury and its partners have developed a 26.2-mile course which is ideal for runners looking to set a PR—almost completely flat.

The race will begin at the City Park and make its way along the Urban Greenway, and then out to the pastoral countryside just outside City limits.  After making a quick pass through Salisbury University, the course will follow Riverside Drive for a flat, straight out-and-back.  The runners will make their final push along Camden Ave., before ultimately crossing the finish in the heart of Downtown Salisbury.  A post-race celebration featuring live music and local craft beer will be held at Headquarters Live!

Mayor Day said, “Salisbury is home to a vibrant, enthusiastic community of runners who have a ton of options for 5k races, 10k races, even a beloved 10-miler with the Tim Kennard.  A marathon in Salisbury is the ultimate draw—not just for local runners, but anyone who might be looking for a fast course. And this is a fast course.  So fast, in fact, that we are working right now to get the SBY Marathon certified as a Boston Qualifier.

“The potential for tourism impact is massive.  I’m excited to announce yet another event which will bring people into our beautiful city to stay in our hotels, shop our stores and boutiques, and eat in our restaurants.”

To view the course and register, visit www.SBYmarathon.com.  Find the SBY Marathon on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sbymarathon, and on Twitter at @sbymarathon.

The only reason he is doing this is so he can share some of the spotlight with his wife since she is big in these marathons now.

It's all about Jake Day and you people are falling for this crap hook, line and sinker!

You people sound pathetic. At least there's movement in this city. A marathon or a bike race brings money from other places here and you just sit on your a$$es complaining. This is fresh money we don't have in our community now and if the experience is good, they'll come back. Bitching and complaining accomplishes nothing. Get up and do something. A$$barro sits and does NOTHING but spewing hate and blame. (Okay, so he ran for Mayor, he lost and has done nothing productive since). We all need to do something, it's not one persons job, it's all our job to make it better. What have you personally done? That's the challenge!

Joe Albero has been behind more good things in this city than any other person in recent history. Id list them but this comment isnt going to see the light of day anyhow. JT is too jealous of him.

JTs only legacy in this town is screwing over the Salvation Army over his pedsonal vendettas.

I hear instead of T-Shirts, participants will receive a lightweight bullet proof vest to mitigate the risk of running through thugsbury.

My name is Bob Culver and I don't have a retirement so I am going to F*ck the Wicomico County employees and retires out of theirs. If I can't have a real retirement then they don't need one. Who cares if they worked over 20 years of their life for the county. I was too dumb to get a real job with benefits now I hope to get re-elected. I know I will get re-elected because I'm saving everyone money by taking their take home cars away from them and giving them back. I saved a lot of money by taking birthday's off away from the employees. I'm the best. Look at my best pick for Deputy County Administrator. Isn't he cute, doesn't he look like my boi Jake Day. I saved all that money by keeping that position vacant for over a year and proving it isn't needed.

JT and his buddies were jealous the the phenominal success Albedo was having helping the Salvation Armys kettle campaign break contribution records. So the trumped up some phoney charges about him at Sams club and someone used their work contacts to give the bogus allegations some tracfion. As a result, Joe bowed out of the kettle campaign to stop the fakd news. Contribution levels have never bee the same since.
