Ferguson Twilight Run is set for Saturday, May 20, 2023, for runners and walkers to enjoy 1-mile, 5K (3.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles) distances for the 14th consecutive year.

Course routes are USATF-certified by Big River Running Company. In the spirit of community, routes take participants through different residential neighborhoods.

The annual race starts and finishes at Plaza at 501 in downtown Ferguson, Missouri.

Pre-race fun includes music and a warm up; cheer stations and water stops are along the route, and post-race fun includes a free concert with a live, local band and a finish area with health, wellness and food vendors.

All registered finishers will receive a commemorative medal.

Donnie White Sr. Memorial Beneficiary Award
Ferguson Twilight Run values community, and since its inception, proceeds are donated to support nonprofit organizations through the Donnie White Sr. Memorial Beneficiary Award. Over the last 13 years, more than $100,000 has been donated. 

Hoka Northern Arizona Elite
In 2021, Hoka One One Northern Arizona Elite, based in Flagstaff, Arizona, joined Ferguson Twilight Run as ambassadors. The partnership continues with the NAZ athletes promoting the local race to running fans around the globe, and they are actively involved in planning the event.

Ben and Jen Rosario, founders of Hoka NAZ Elite, are both from Missouri, from St. Louis and Harrisonville, respectively. Ben is the executive director; Jen is director of operations.

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.

Sponsors and vendors are vital to Ferguson Twilight Run. Our 2023 sponsors include BJC HealthCare, Negwer Materials, Terrain Magazine, Nerdy Diva, Tim Larson, Ferguson Brewing Co., Edward and Sharon James, Spewak Training, ArchWell Health and St. Louis Track Club.
