The GO! St. Louis races have been recognized as great events for experienced or first-time competitors, who are looking for a race that provides an abundance of participant services and amenities. Additionally, crowd support along the course and helpful volunteers, make this event one of the highest quality marathon races in the Midwest. Each year thousands of people participate, not only from the St. Louis region, but from numerous other states and countries.
The marathon course starts and finishes in the historic St. Louis downtown area. At the beginning of the race, participants head toward the impressive Gateway Arch, before turning south and heading for the famed Anheuser-Busch brewery. The course also includes Union Station, City Garden, Forest Park (larger than New York’s Central Park), Washington University, City of Clayton, and University City Loop (voted one of the top ten streets in America), before heading down Market Street to the finish line.
