A Community Run Benefiting the Girls on the Run Scholarship Fund

Saturday, May 14, 2022
Forest Park!
5k / 3.1 miles or 1-mile Fun Run

Join us for the Girls on the Run Forest Park!!

We are so excited to be able to offer an in-person 5K Saturday, May 14th in Forest Park - a return to our former 5K stomping grounds. 

In recognizing our responsibility to be intentional in our decision making, we are following the recommendations of the City of St. Louis Department of Health regarding large events and are working closely with Big River Race Management to implement proven strategies for distancing and wave starts to protect the safety of our participants and the community. 

We will have two large waves, with teams and community runners on a staggered release schedule to keep the 5K course less crowded.  The course is chip timed so your time doesn't start until you cross the starting mat and doesn't end until you cross the finish line mat. 

We look forward to you being a part of the GOTR-STL 5K, just like our Girls on the Run!  Thank you for your support!
