**After a significant amount of thought and discussion, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the remaining dates in the 2020 St. Louis Track Club Pace Series. Safety for our participants/members and adherence to the St. Louis City guidelines are first and foremost in our resulting decision. Please continue to run while respecting social distancing and join us in anticipation for our upcoming SLTC events. We thank you and very much appreciate your understanding.
SUMMER PACE SERIES
WEDNESDAYS IN FOREST PARK
Join us every Wednesday evening at 6pm for any or all of the 12-week Series, starting July 1,
where runners guess their finish time and then run without a watch. We meet by the Cricket fields next to the Visitors Center in Forest Park.
St. Louis County and St. Louis City have issued new public health orders requiring all individuals to wear a face mask or covering at all times when in indoor facilities and outside when social distancing is not possible. The requirement applies to everyone over the age of nine (9). There will be limited exceptions to the order for certain circumstances, and health conditions. The orders take effect in the City and County at 0700, July 3rd, 2020.
