Half Marathon and 5K Run
Sunday November 1, 2020
We are excited to be offering both in person and virtual events this year for our half marathon and 5K races.
While the ground continues to shift related to COVID-19, we are thrilled to be able to make the St. Louis Half Marathon a live and in-person event with an option for runners to do a virtual 13.1 event.
This year will be the 49th consecutive year of the St. Louis Classic Road Race. A new course is in store for 2020 Half Marathon runners...details & a course map to be announced soon. Forest Park will again be the centerpiece attraction of the Half Marathon. This year's race starts and finishes on the Blvd. in front of The Muny!
* At any point leading up to race day, a Virtual 13.1 runner can upgrade to become a Live 13.1 runner.
* Should a Live Event not be permitted or allowed, we will allow all Live 13.1 runners to convert to the Virtual Race, defer entry to another St. Louis Track Club event, including the 2021 Half Marathon, or receive a refund minus registration fees.
* St. Louis Track Club MEMBERS, please sign into RunSignUp as a member in order to acquire your race discount.
As with any race year, the health and well-being of everyone is our utmost concern and we will keep all event options within the guidelines of the CDC, the State of Missouri, and the City of St. Louis. We also will address the comfort levels of the charities, sponsors, and volunteer teams that are all needed for a successful live event.

We are working hard to give you a memorable in person race experience while adhering to the latest Covid 19 guidelines. We will be assigning bib numbers based on when you signed up for the race. At the start there will be 15 corrals with 24 runners each. A corral will be sent out every 3 minutes, with 4 runners within each corral starting every 15 seconds. This is to maximize distance between runners.
While you will not be required to race in a face covering, you will be required to wear one while in the start/finish area, corrals, start and finishing chute. We will be sending out a short Covid symptom questionnaire prior to the race and you will be required to fill it out and submit it electronically no more than 24 hours prior to the start. We will have hard copies available on location if you have not submitted it, as you will not be allowed to start without it.
More detailed information to come as we get closer to race day!
