The GO! St. Louis All-American 5K & Fun Run promises to be pure All-American fun, complete with apple pie and ice cream, and is open to all ages and fitness abilities. The flat-downhill 5k course will be ideal for those athletes looking for a new PR (personal record) on a scenic neighborhood course.

This 5K race & Fun Run (1-Mile) is a summer family tradition, so make plans to join us on Father’s Day!

Event Highlights

• High quality shirt to all participants
• Finisher Medal to 5K participants
• Fun and Festive Post-Race Refreshments, including Ice Cream
• Prize Money for Overall 5K Winners
• Apple Pies for Top 3 in 5K Age Groups
• Music and lots of other fun All-American stuff

Race Course

The 5K course starts in downtown Kirkwood (325 North Taylor, near the YMCA) and finishes in Webster Groves (East Lockwood & North Gore). The course will be flat with numerous downhills, so here’s your chance to set a new PR (personal record) in the 5K.  Please note that the start of the 1-Mile is in Webster Groves and not in Kirkwood.

Time Limits

GO! St. Louis is committed to providing the safest race course for our participants. We therefore set time limits to ensure that all runners are protected from vehicular traffic and have the aid station support they need to successfully complete the race.

The overall course pace is 14:52 minutes per mile, which will be strictly enforced. Any runner who falls behind this pace will be asked to move to the sidewalk and obey all traffic signals. If you choose to continue there will be no medical support, aid stations, or course monitors at intersections, and the course will no longer be marked. Participants after that time will not be guaranteed a finish time, medal, or finish line festivities.

  • 5K: 1 hour

Rules, Regulations & Race Bib Transfer

  • 5K age limit: 8 years of age or older

We do allow baby joggers/strollers in both the 5K and the Fun Run, but must start at the back of the start line area. No dogs, pets, roller blades, skateboards or wagons are allowed in any of the races.

Transferring of race bibs is not allowed in this race. While the practice of giving your race bib to someone else, may seem harmless, it can result in serious consequences to both parties involved. It’s an issue of false identity and a liability issue. Why? The most important reason is that your race bib is attached to your identity, so if an emergency occurs that requires medical attention or a race official must identify a participant, we need to have accurate information. In addition, finisher awards may be impacted. If race organizers identify an individual who has given their race bib to another person, it will result in disqualification and a minimum two-year ban for both individuals for any GO! St. Louis race.

Race Day Parking

There are a variety of parking options available on race morning, but the majority of the parking will be available in Kirkwood. If you are parking in Kirkwood, there is a parking garage at Madison & Kirkwood Road or street parking is available on Argonne, Jefferson and Madison. In Webster Groves, there will be plenty of parking available on side streets and lots in and around the business district. Please DO NOT park on the race course along Adams and Woodlawn. Points of interest near the 5K start line are the Kirkwood train station, Commerce Bank, Bar Louie and Kaldi’s Coffee.

Race Day Shuttle Service

Since the 5K race starts in Kirkwood and finishes in Webster Groves we will offer a free shuttle service after the 5K race from Webster Groves back to the start line in Kirkwood, beginning at 8:30 am, and concluding at 9:30 am. For those 5K participants that choose to park near the finish line in Webster Groves, we offer shuttle service to the start line in Kirkwood beginning at 5:30 am, and ending at 7:00 am. Look for the large shuttle flag banners, which indicate pickup/drop off locations. You will be asked to show your race bib for access to the shuttle.

Weather Policy

Race officials may cancel, delay or change the event in case of extreme weather or other conditions that may affect the safety and health of the participants. In the event of cancellation, refunds will not be issued. Weather related updates will be posted through our official Facebook and Twitter pages, and through the local media.
