With the arrival of the ice storm, we are sad to announce the cancellation of the Jan. 14 20K and 5K runs.

Please email email@example.com and in the subject line please include your name and the race you would like to switch to.
Series entrants: Series entrants will receive a $10 discount code for next season’s Frostbite Series when we open registration. For this year, we will be calculating final series standings based on each entrant’s top three finishes (rather than top four finishes).

Pet Policy at SLTC Events:
The St. Louis Track Club is in agreement with the Road Runners Club of America that no dogs, except service animals, participate in running/walking events.
RRCA Guidelines for Dogs at/or in Events The Road Runners Club of America strongly recommends that group run leaders and event organizers adopt a “no dogs/pets allowed” policy for anyone participating in group training runs or organized events. Furthermore, event organizers should have a “no dogs/pets allowed” policy for volunteers, spectators, and participants in the start and finish areas of an event. Only service dogs should be allowed at an event with a participant or spectator, and an event organizer may ask if a dog is a service animal.
Thank you for abiding by these guidelines.
