Course Information:

5K Run / Walk

Our 5K route starts and finishes near the Visitor’s Center in Forest Park, and weaves through beautiful park streets and past the park’s historic attractions.  Open to all ages and abilities, and includes our middle school participants in the Read, Right & Run Marathon program - this event is a great way to celebrate the camaraderie and spirit of Marathon Weekend. 

Read, Right & Run Marathon

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.
