The 3rd annual Veterans Day 5K will be held in conjunction with the 35th annual St. Louis Regional Veterans Day Observance Ceremony and Parade on Saturday, November 10, 2018.

Registration is now open! The Veterans Day 5K, presented by The Gatesworth, includes a timed 5K, One-Mile Fun-Run and free Kids’ Dash. It is a family-friendly event to honor and celebrate those who have served and are serving our country. 20% of St. Patrick Center’s clients are veterans and proceeds from the event benefit these clients and their families. Soldiers Memorial will re-open on November 3 after a $30 million renovation. Veterans Day 5K attendees will have the opportunity to explore the museum and enjoy many fun-filled activities throughout the day. There will also be a runners’ village with food, coffee, water, beer (21+), bubble bus, yard games, DJ and more! Stay tuned for more details.

Cost: $30* (free Kids’ Dash), $35 beginning on November 9

*All paid participants receive a free moisture wicking long sleeve shirt. Design will be announced soon!

New this year- option for team registration! Gather your co-workers or family and friends together and create a team.
