The annual 5K (3.1 miles) race is held in April as part of the GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend and takes place on Family Fitness Day in Forest Park. The 5K is one of the most diverse events, with all ages and fitness levels joining together to compete. The 5K traditionally sells out in advance of the race, so sign up early to secure your spot. Please note that the participation cap for the 2016 race is 3,000 individuals.

The 5K Run/Walk is a great event for the novice runner or walker looking to join others in achieving their fitness goals. In addition, some of the area’s top short distance runners mark their calendar for this race.

All participants will receive a top quality event t-shirt and finisher medal. Post-race refreshments will be provided. Participants with baby joggers/strollers are permitted, but must start in the back.
