Brand New Run Route in 2015!

We are excited about the new 2015 route, which took runners past Deer Lake Nature Reserve, around Pagoda Circle, past the Boathouse and Post-Dispatch Lake, in front of the World's Fair Pavilion and the South Entrance of the Saint Louis Zoo, up Art Hill past the Saint Louis Art Museum, and then down around the Emerson Grand Basin before reaching the finish line. This new route was praised by runners who enjoyed seeing the scenic beauty of so many Forest Park landmarks during the race.
