Salamander Scramble 5K Fundraiser 2023

July 4 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

NEW! Online registration form, see below.

Join Team Salamander for the Salamander Scramble 5K at the Waynesboro Summer Jubilee on July 4th!

Register as a Scrambler for the Kids Fun Run at 7:15 a.m., or the Firecracker 5K at 7:30 a.m.

Lace up your running/walking shoes and join Team Salamander as we “scramble” around Waynesboro to raise funds for The Institute. Team members secure funding pledges from friends, family, and co-workers. All athletic levels are welcome. 

We hope to see everyone walk, run—or scramble!—for The Institute in 2023!

Can’t be with us on race day? You can still register as a Scrambler to support The Institute. Walk, Run or Scramble in any location—be sure to send us a picture in your Scramble t-shirt.
(Shirt provided with registration.) “Virtual Scramblers” continue to registration at bottom of page.

As part of Team Salamander, you’ll enjoy the following perks on race day: A team shirt (if you are a returning Scrambler you may recycle a 2022 shirt), a cool towel to help you cool off after the finish line, refreshments in our VIP Scramble Tent, and prizes! The Institute will cover your Firecracker 5K race fees, a VIP code will be provided upon completion of registration AND with your registration you receive a one-year membership to The Institute. You’ll receive information by mail and get discounts on certain community programs.

There is a grand prize each year to the Scrambler that donates the highest amount to The Institute—whether it’s through a large family participating or through raised pledges. Click here to print off a pledge form for raising funds. Grand prize to be announced soon.

Don’t want to “scramble” but want to help? We need volunteers for flagging—training provided!

Thank you to our returning Lead Sponsor, Grove-Bowersox Funeral Home
