The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon® (RRRM) presented by Express Scripts 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-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.
Students in grades K-5 receive a colorful activity journal that is a great resource for physical fitness and nutrition information, while encouraging them to become better community citizens.
After 26 weeks of hard work, the program culminates each year when the students run their final 1.2 miles at our Annual Family Day in Forest Park.
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.
