Description

The Saint Louis classic road race returns for the 51st year! The Saint Louis Track Club will host the Saint Louis Half Marathon and 5K on November 6, 2022! 

World renowned Forest Park remains the centerpiece attraction of the Saint Louis Track Club's Half Marathon. Runners and walkers will wind their way past the iconic institutions and beautiful scenery of Forest Park. The start and finish line are in front of The Muny at #1 Theatre Drive.   

First held in 1971, the Saint Louis Half Marathon is the longest running half marathon race in the Saint Louis region. We again will offer both virtual and in-person options!

Our Charity Partner is The ALS Association - St. Louis Chapter. We ask that you consider an individual donation to the Association to supplement the Saint Louis Track Club's support. Please also bring your old running shoes to donate! Proceeds for shoe donations will benefit Saint Louis Track Club’s scholarship fund (see https://www.stlouistrackclub.com/general-6 for more details).

Packet pickup will be available on two days, both at the Muny, at the following times: Saturday, November 5, 2022 from 10:00am to 2:00pm, and prior to the races on Sunday morning, November 6, 2022, until 7:15am if you are a Half Marathon participant and until 7:45am if you are a 5K participant. You may pick up the packet of a friend or family member and you do not need the Track Club's permission to do so. 

Prize money will be paid out to the top three overall male and female runners for the live, in-person Half Marathon. The prize money awards will be: $500 each to the overall male and female first place finisher, $250 each to the overall male and female second place finisher, and $100 each to the overall male and female third place finisher. We will also offer male and female age group awards for the following age groups (as of race day): under 19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70+.

Registration for ALL RACES will close at 11:59pm on November 3, 2022. Seriously. We will spare you the details, but it makes it more difficult to print and assign bibs and to track runners when you sign up late. Please don’t ask us to accept race day registrations or registrations at packet pickup. Please register early and tell your friends and family to do the same!

WE MUST ORDER SHIRTS, MEDALS, AND ADD-ON OPTIONS WELL IN ADVANCE (WE ALL UNDERSTAND THE SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES THAT EXIST IN 2022). IN NO EVENT CAN WE GUARANTEE A MEDAL, ADD-ON, OR SHIRT (OR ANY SPECIFIC SHIRT SIZE) IF YOU REGISTER AFTER 11:59PM ON OCTOBER 9, 2022.

Starting in 2022, our included race day shirt (for both distances) will be made of a higher quality, premium material when compared to the standard race day shirt you are used to receiving! See the graphic on the top left of this page to see the 2022 logo, medal design, and shirt graphic. 

To avoid a large pack at the start of the race, we will again utilize an "open start." There will be a typical gun start for the half marathon at 7:30am. However, you do not have to start with the 7:30am gun if you do not want to do so. You may start your half marathon race at any time between the 7:30am gun and 7:45am. For the 5K, there will be a gun start at 8:00am, but you may start at any time between the 8:00am gun and 8:10am. Starting after the gun start will not impact your time or place. The race is entirely chip timed, meaning your race time will start whenever your race bib and its attached timing chip cross the start line. Therefore, someone who starts the half marathon at 7:40am and running faster can potentially place higher than someone who started at 7:30am and running slower, even if the 7:30am starter actually crosses the finish line first. 

***To keep the race competitive, we encourage runners that expect to race for prize money in the Half Marathon to start with the 7:30am gun.
