St. Louis’ Favorite Running Tradition!

As the largest competitive fitness event in Missouri, this popular two-day event attracts more than 25,000 participants and includes races for all ages and fitness abilities. The weekend includes a full marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 7K, 5K, children’s fun runs, and more!

After a huge success in 2017, St. Louis’ hometown race will once again be staged in front of the historic Arch Grounds on the riverfront.  Start at the Gateway Arch and make your way into Illinois and back in St. Louis for a historic tour of Soulard with views of Anheuser-Busch Brewery along your way. Then, marathoners head to Tower Grove Park and Forest Park before heading back downtown to finish on the historic riverfront under the Arch. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to run through some of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods.

GO! St. Louis is committed to fighting the rising rate of youth obesity and keeping St. Louis healthy and fit. Our unique youth programs have quickly gained national recognition and focus on developing physical fitness skills, nutrition tips, and training tools to encourage students of all ages to lead a healthy lifestyle. We offer three programs, which encourage students beginning in kindergarten through high school the opportunity participate.
The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon® (RRRM) presented by Express Scripts was launched in 2001 and quickly gained national recognition. The program’s goal is to develop reading-proficient, community-minded and physically fit children in grades K-5 by challenging them to READ 26 books, RIGHT the community with 26 good deeds, and RUN 26.2 miles over a six-month period. It is a standards-based, sustainable, enrichment program that endorses and supports existing school curriculum.
GO! St. Louis Middle School Milers was created in 2014 to meet the needs of students in grades 6 – 8, who are at an in-between period where fitness can have a big impact on not just their physical health, but their overall outlook. Many schools may not have a developed sports program but a running/walking enrichment program may provide an energy outlet for students. Students will follow a 9-week training program with a goal of running/walking the GO! St. Louis 5K on April 7, 2018.
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 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.
