About GO! St. Louis Marathon

GO! St. Louis, a local non-profit organization, encourages individuals and families in the St. Louis region to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle year round. The organization accomplishes this through community collaborations, school based programming and the creation of new and fun fitness events.

The GO! St. Louis Family Fitness Weekend, held in April each year, continues to be our signature event, attracting over 23,000 participants from 47 states and 12 countries in 2010. The GO! St. Louis Family Fitness Weekend features 10 different races for all ages and fitness abilities. The event is Missouri’s largest competitive fitness event and includes a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 5K run/walk, children’s fun runs and a mature mile. The Family Fitness Weekend has become a national model for other running organizations and communities, looking to inspire residents to make community wellness a priority.

In addition to the annual Family Fitness Weekend, the innovative GO! St. Louis Read, Right & Run Marathon program for students is in its tenth year of inspiring children to read 26 books, right the community with 26 good deeds and run 26.6 miles in six months. During the current school year the program will be offered in more than 180 schools in the St. Louis region.
