Race Winners

Congratulations to the 2021 Go the Distance Race Winners!


Maryville University’s Go The Distance Race is back! 2021’s race will feature a return of the weeklong 1 mile and 5K virtual races and the exciting addition of an in-person 5K race on Maryville’s campus on Sunday, September 26. All proceeds from the race benefit the Go the Distance Scholarship which covers the financial gap for Maryville student-athletes who reach the end of their eligibility before reaching their academic finish line.

In-Person 5K Course Information

Course Description: The in-person 5K will start and finish in front of Walker Hall on Maryville University’s campus. The course features fantastic and unique views of Maryville University and Maryville Centre, including a bridge, lake and fountain. Racers will start by exploring the new Maryville Athletic Complex and finish with a sprint through the heart of Maryville’s campus.

Course Advisory: While the majority of the race will take place on pavement or sidewalk, there is a few hundred meter section which is comprised of gravel and grass. The transition on/off of this section involves a standard-height street curb. Ramps will be in place to assist participants using devices to navigate these transitions. The beginning of this section features a short, but steep gravel incline. In the middle of the section is a short, but steep gravel decline. The end is a gradual gravel incline leading back to road surface. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this section of the race.
