Nippy Niner Trail Run

Sun January 31, 2021 Saint Louis, MO 63138 US Directions

Nine Mile Trail Run

9:00AM CST - 12:00PM CST

Nine K (5.6 M) Trail Race

9:00AM CST - 12:00PM CST

The Nippy Niner offers two distances -  a 9 mile (15k) and a 5.6 mile (9k) option. Both distances are on paved, gravel and off-road trails. Due to the flooding - the River's Edge Trail and the Confluence Conservation Area are still too damaged to be used for the 2021 edition of the Nippy Niner.

For 2021 the Nippy Niner Trail run returns to higher ground and takes place in Spanish Lake Park just above the Confluence Conservation Area. The race will begin on paved trail around Spanish Lake before heading into the double track, gravel, and single track around the upper Sunflower Lake. 9 Mile competitors will complete two laps of the trail section, 9K competitors will complete one off-road loop. (This is the same route used in 2016 and 2020 due to similar trail damage). There will be a bit more elevation gain on this loop than in the river bottoms. Both distances will be extra nippy.
