Market Mile

August 11 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

The Market Mile is a community-based, one-mile walk/run that invites you to give back and have fun doing it!

Beyond the promise of sunny summer weather, a one-mile course straight down Market Street, the “take it at your own pace” vibes and a buzzing after-party at Union Station, the Market Mile is different because it’s powering up the nonprofits who work tirelessly on the future of our city.

The Market Mile serves St. Louis through core areas of need: accessible green spaces, safe housing and public safety. These pillars will change as time goes on, but for our inaugural year, we sought four race beneficiaries whose missions aligned with these core needs.

🌳 Accessible Green Spaces | Great Rivers Greenway

Our mission is to make the St. Louis region a more vibrant place to live, work and play by developing a regional network of greenways.

🏠 Safe Housing | Peter & Paul Community Services

Peter & Paul Community Services offers those we serve hope, empowerment, compassion, hospitality and a chance for independence.

🚨 Public Safety | The BackStoppers®

The BackStoppers provides ongoing needed financial assistance and support to the spouses and dependent children of all police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs who have lost their lives or suffered a catastrophic injury in the line of duty.

Partnering with St. Louis Icons

If the Market Mile’s values could be summed up in three words, it’s be community, accessibility and city pride. Developing city pride takes time, and it takes making fun memories while celebrating the history that weaves through everything, from the architecture to the food.

We are proud to partner with our sponsors, Union Station, Lodging Hospitality Management, and 4 Hands Brewing Co., to bring the Market Mile event to life.

The iconic Union Station is the perfect blend of history and modernity. The renovations that have redefined the hotel and surrounding station pay homage to the rich history of both St. Louis and Union Station, which is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year!

Established in 1986, Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM) is a St. Louis-based lodging and hospitality management company; its properties include well-known spots like Westport Social, 360 Rooftop Bar and, most notably, the revitalized Union Station. LHM’s work is transforming the way locals and visitors alike experience St. Louis today and well into the future.

4 Hands Brewing Co. is known for more than brewing delicious craft beer. With a strong focus on community support and philanthropy, the brewery has given back over $300,000 to local nonprofits through its City Wide Mission. There’s no better beer partner for The Market Mile than 4 Hands.

We’ve selected Union Station, LHM and 4 Hands Brewing Co. not only for their contributions to our event, but for the work they do on a daily basis to create a great atmosphere in Downtown St. Louis that we can all enjoy.
