For 13 years, Ferguson Twilight Run (FTR) has welcomed runners and walkers, family and friends, neighbors, visitors and so many more to enjoy a run for everyone. The annual event is Saturday, May 14, 2022.
To celebrate the milestone year, FTR 13.1 offers participants a half-marathon distance by pairing the 5K (3.1 miles) with the 10-mile. Runners will do the 5K route first, then set off on the 10-mile route.
Ferguson Twilight Run will limit in-person participation to 700 runners and walkers. All distances are offered virtually with unlimited participation. FTR will follow the health and safety guidelines recommended by public health and local government. Details will be posted online.

Partnership with Hoka One One Northern Arizona Elite
In 2021, Hoka One One Northern Arizona Elite, a professional sports team, joined Ferguson Twilight Run as ambassadors. The partnership continues in 2022 with the NAZ athletes promoting the local race to running fans around the globe and actively involved in planning the event.
The team, based out of Flagstaff, Arizona, has a connection to St. Louis through head coach Ben Rosario.
A Run for Everyone
Ferguson Twilight Run debuted in May 2010 as the first evening race in north St. Louis County. Since the beginning, the run encourages a sense of community while supporting a common interest. Proceeds are donated to nonprofits in north St. Louis County that promote the healthy and sustainable benefits of fitness. To date, more than $100,000 has been given to community organizations through the Donnie White Sr. Memorial Beneficiary Award.
The 2022 recipients are A Red Circle, Emerson Family YMCA, Girls on the Run St. Louis Ferguson-Florissant School District, and St. Vincent Home for Children.
Volunteers and Sponsors
Ferguson Twilight Run relies on countless community volunteers to plan and coordinate every aspect of the event — from the planning committee to cheer stations, water stations and road closures, start and finish area, packet pick up, informing neighborhood residents and more — to make it a success.
The contributions of sponsors are vital to Ferguson Twilight Run. 2022 sponsors include the City of Ferguson, Big River Running Company, Negwer Materials, World Wide Technology, Vincenzo’s Italian Ristorante, Hoka One One Northern Arizona Elite, St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, the James family, Ferguson Brewing Company, Saint Louis Track Club, Terrain Magazine, Tim Larson, and Spewak Training.
