Local Running Clubs
St Louis has a large and active running community. We are happy to share information about many of the local running clubs here, including who they are, what they do and where and when they meet. You will also find contact information for each club. We are sure you will find a club that meets all of your needs whether you are a St Louis metro area resident or just visiting.
BIG RIVER RACING
Big River Racing is about running in its purest form. We encompass racing and pushing one’s limits, accepting anyone who shares our passion for running. The team is a dedicated group of like-minded individuals who train, race and socialize with the goal of improving the St. Louis running community through advocacy, openness and volunteerism. The team exists to support runners from post-collegiate athletes to those relatively new to the sport and anyone in between. Any runner who is interested in training (and socializing) with a group and seeks to improve on their running performance is invited to join. We welcome runners of all abilities from the back of the pack to those pushing the pace up front.
We meet throughout the year, but typically Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Contact us for locations.
DOGTOWN RUNNING CLUB
We are a social club located in the Dogtown with a mix of beginners and advanced runners. We seek to inspire & engage the St. Louis running community through creating a safe & fun environment for runners of all levels and abilities. Dogtown Running Club regularly competes in races, volunteers for local organizations, and hosts events, which are all intended to promote an active, social lifestyle and aid athletes in their running pursuits.

EUREKA RUN CLUB
The purpose of Eureka Run club is to provide its community with a supportive group environment that encourages and educates its members on the benefits of participating in the sport of running. Furthermore, the Club may host group runs, fun runs, educational opportunities, training opportunities, and all such other things as may be relevant to the encouragement of running. The Club also engages in community activities, to publicize by appropriate means, the benefits of running to contribute to the physical fitness, well-being, and health status of the people in our community.
Thursday evenings at 5:30p. Downtown Eureka, MO -- Central Avenue lot across from Circle K. More runs being added soon!
FILA ENDURANCE ATHLETES
We empower the everyday runner with quality, collaborative support.
Enlisting support isn’t just for elite athletes. Athletes of all levels can benefit from hiring a running coach. This could be for someone who would like to run a mile without stopping for a walk break or someone who is ready to tackle their 1st marathon race. That’s not to say that a coach is something that every runner NEEDS to thrive, but the support is invaluable for most. A private running coach can help with training and race guidance for a variety of distances/terrains.
Community runs 1st Saturday of each month. Location varies. Contact us or check our social media.
