5K Course

This year’s race course will have a new twist with a chance for participants to run across the Eads Bridge! Get a view of the skyline and the iconic Gateway Arch as you hit the halfway point and head for home!


To provide participants a chance to spread out, the 2021 Biz Dash 5K will be offering rolling start times this year. The start line will open at 6:30pm and runners/walkers can begin the race anytime between 6:30 and 7:15pm.  Participants are chip-timed and should complete their 5K by 8pm to qualify for team scoring.


All levels of runners and walkers are welcome! More than half the crowd actually walks.

Participants can park in the surface lots or the garage at Ballpark Village for just $5 on the night of the event. The special rate begins at 4pm.



Participants can also pre-purchase parking passes for $5 per car for the Stadium West and East Garages. The special rate begins at 3pm. You will need to select the date (2021-09-02) and the arrival/departure times.
