Date: April 15, 2012
Distance: 13.1 miles, 26.2 miles
Race Cost: $85
Race website: http://www.gostlouis.org
Total Runners: Around 9,000 for the half marathon, 1,700 for the full marathon
Race Start Time: 7am
Course: Rolling Hills. Some hills are fairly long. The half marathon course takes you through the city of St. Louis, and the roads are all closed for the race. At approximately the 10 mile mark, the half marathoners and full marathoners split up. At that point, it’s a very lonely race for the full marathon runners.
Weather: Weather in April can be cold and rainy or hot and humid. Prepare for all scenarios.
Race Schwag: You get a long-sleeve t-shirt by registering and a very nice finisher’s medal awaits you.
