COURSE

Boston Marathon–qualifying course that includes America’s longest Main Street, portions of a paved running/bicycle trail, and neighborhood roads in historic Belleville, IL, which is just a short drive from downtown St. Louis, MO. Great race for newer and experienced runners with ample hydration and fueling stations, enthusiastic volunteers to cheer you on along the course, and all the amenities of a big city race but with small town charm! Race begins in downtown Belleville on Main Street, just west of the Public Square between Illinois 159 and First Street.
