Hundreds of runners from all over St. Louis will be lacing up their running shoes on the morning of Saturday, February 23rd, 2013, for the first annual Ultimate 5K. The race will take the participants from the St. Charles Convention Center along a route through St. Charles. You can either participate in the 5K Run or 1K walk. The course begins gently and builds into some challenging hills during the run. The downhill finish and spectator friendly course make this a great tune up for the spring race season.
Entrants registering at least 2 weeks prior to the race will receive a t-shirt, and a first annual Ultimate 5K tote bag. All participants will receive one ticket valued at $9.00 to the St. Louis Working Women's Show - good for any day of the show. Runners will be able to pick up their registration packets on the Thursday prior to the race at the St. Charles Convention Center. The starting gun sounds at 8am on Saturday morning.
The Embassy Suites (adjacent to the St. Charles Convention Center) will be our home base for the race. Participants are invited to take advantage of pre-race get together/registration from 7am until the start of the race. Participants can also come back to that location after the race, up until doors open for the St. Louis Working Women's Show at 10am.
