Event Details

GO! St. Louis’ newest addition to its annual calendar of events is the GO! St. Louis Run at the Raceway. The event, scheduled for the evening of August 18, 2018, will take place at the Gateway Motorsports Park and features a 5K run/walk, 1-mile fun run, and 4-person beer relay.

The 5K will feature a lap around Gateway’s oval and the 1-mile fun run will run the lengths of the drag strip. Adding to the exciting atmosphere, the run will take place at dusk under the lights of the race track. Participants will receive a top of the line event shirt and finisher’s medal. 

Grab your friends and sign up for the 4-person beer relay!  Each team member will run 1/4 mile on the drag strip and finish their run with a cold beer (non-alcoholic option available) before the next relay member heads out. Participants in the beer relay will receive a top of the line event shirt.  Participants in the Beer Relay must be 21 years of age or older to participate.

Located just five minutes from downtown St. Louis and covering nearly 200 acres, Gateway Motorsports Park is the largest outdoor entertainment facility in the region, encompassing a ¼-mile NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, 1.25-mile superspeedway, 1.6- mile road course, a state-of-the-art Karting facility and a new 14-acre, multi-purpose dirt off-road venue.

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.
