Course - Biz Dash

5K Course Route

The heart of the Biz Dash is the 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk through Downtown St. Louis. This year’s route goes through the central corridor of the city with views of the Gateway Arch, Kiener Plaza, Busch Stadium, Union Station and ending right in front of Centene Stadium. All levels of runners and walkers are welcome! More than half the crowd actually walks the race.



Participants can begin moving to the starting line (on Market Street) around 6:30-6:40pm. The 5K will start at 7pm. Participants are chip-timed and should complete their 5K by 8pm to qualify for team scoring. The course will be open to traffic starting at 8:15pm.
