GO! St. Louis Challenges FAQs

I’ve already registered for one (or a few) of the races, but I want to do the challenge. What do I do?

No problem, please call or email the office and we can walk you through the process of registering for your chosen Challenge based on your previous registration(s).  314.727.0800 or  info@gostlouis.org

Do I have to complete all events to get the swag?
As with any race, you must complete each event to get it’s medal, and you must complete all events in your challenge to get the commemorative challenge medal. The lightweight sweatshirt, however, will be given out at packet pick-up for the final event of your challenge series regardless of completion of the events.
