5K Course

The heart of the Biz Dash is the 5K (3.1 miles) run/walk through Downtown St. Louis. The 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 CITYPARK.


Participants can begin moving to the starting line (on Market Street) around 6:40pm. The 5K will start at 7pm.


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

Bernie Federko Is The 2024 Grand Marshal

Continuing our St. Louis sports teams theme, NHL and Blues Hall of Famer Bernie Federko will be the grand marshal of the 2024 Biz Dash 5K presented by World Wide Technology.


The 2024 Biz Dash will have a Blues flair featuring Bernie “dropping the puck” from the Ameren bucket truck at the start line to kick off the race.


The Blues mascot, Louie will also present awards following the race with his buddy, Fredbird.

Food & Beverages
