We all know that a sure sign of spring is the annual Ferguson Twilight Run. Circle the date on your calendar for Saturday, May 18. Runners and walkers of all abilities will enjoy 1-mile, 5K (3.1 miles), and 10K (6.2 miles) distances on routes that are USATF-certified by Big River Running Company.

“It’s definitely a sure sign of spring in Ferguson and North County when runners and walkers line up with anticipation at the start line and then cross the finish line with pride in their effort,” said Dwayne T. James, race director. “We’re humbled the community supports the race year after year, and now we’re looking at year 15. It takes a lot of effort, planning, volunteers, and support from the community to make it this far.”
