The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon® (RRRM) was launched in 2001 and quickly gained national recognition, most recently recognized by RUNNING USA as the “2013 Youth Program of the Year.” The program’s goal is to develop reading-proficient, community-minded and physically fit children in grades K-8 by challenging them to READ
26 books, RIGHT
the community with 26 good deeds, and RUN
26.2 miles over a 26 week period. It is a standards-based, sustainable, enrichment program that endorses and supports existing school curriculum.
After 26 weeks of hard work, the program culminates when the students complete their race day goals at our Annual Family Day in Forest Park. Students in grades K-5 will run either 1 or 2 miles on race day and students in grades 6-8 will complete a 5K.
More than 100,000 area students have accepted the challenge since the program was established in 2001. The Read, Right & Run Marathon® is open to schools and organizations in the St. Louis region.
