Thank you to all who participated in this year's Go the Distance Race!
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.
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.
