Event Details

Students on the GO! is a team-based program to engage high school students in an active and healthy lifestyle year-round. Students train to run or walk (or a combination of both!) the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon each April. Students embark on a personal journey of self-discovery where they explore and experience the lifelong benefits of a comprehensive health and fitness program.

Program Goals

The goal of the program is to target students who could use the benefits of a structured running or walking activity. The program engages them to experience the benefits of goal-setting, discipline, teamwork, improved health and a feeling of accomplishment in a positive and supportive environment.

Participation

For 2017, GO! St. Louis will partner with 16 St Louis area high schools. Principals, Teachers along with students will follow a 20-week incremental training program schedule. The GO! St. Louis staff, along with outside experts support the team members with motivation, nutrition tips and training tools to carry out the program. Students train a few days a week after school and then complete one weekly long run on Saturdays in Forest Park.

Incentives

Students and teachers involved in the program earn incentives for attendance that are also a benefit to their running and walking training. These include running shoes, a race-day shirt and finisher’s jacket. Students also receive complimentary entries into other GO! St. Louis events in June and October.

Scholarship Program

Qualifying students may apply to the Students on the GO! scholarship program for financial assistance to pursue post K-12 accredited job skills training, two or four-year higher education degrees.
