On June 1, GO! St. Louis announced a new name, venue, and schedule for St. Louis’ largest competitive running and fitness event. The Greater St. Louis Marathon will feature a weekend of races, with new courses, historic sights, vibrant after-parties, and for the first time, the National Running Club Championships & Rally. 

The marathon will take place on April 27, 2024, and will start and finish downtown, featuring a finish line festival at St. Louis SC’s CITYPARK stadium. The National Running Club Championships & Rally, a new concept unique to the Greater St. Louis Marathon, will allow for running clubs and teams to sign up together and earn points based on an age and gender graded system, with the top point-getters earning bragging rights and awards. 

“I’m ecstatic that our organization has an opportunity to collaborate on this exciting new partnership with Greater St. Louis Inc., St. Louis City SC, and other important stakeholders to offer a new and refreshed event experience to the region,” said Mona Vespa, president of GO! St. Louis, in a statement.
