The Awesome 3000 started in 1983. Recognized as one of the largest running events in the Salem-Keizer School Districts. The course distance ranges from 300-3000 meters around the track. The run is a positive and challenging experience for children of all ages.
Freemasons support the Salem-Keizer education foundation by providing parents and guardians with a kit to give authorities, so it can assist in their efforts to locate a missing child. We also host a breakfast meal for the community during the event.
