September 9th “Katy Trail” | 7:00 a.m. | 3, 6, 10 mile options
Covered in crushed limestone, the surface absorbs impact well, and is much easier on runners’ legs than cement. You will get dusty but it will be worth it.
This date will feature the last 6 miles to the finish line that normally only the marathoners experience. Running along the Katy Trail to the Creve Coeur Connector Bridge and back. Views of the riverfront, Ameristar Casino, Family Arena, and Creve Coeur Bridge, with lots of shade! We will offer a 3, 6, or 10 mile.
