Starting Sunday, July 11th, come run with us Sunday mornings at Fleet Feet Des Peres for a relaxed group run. (Check this page for holiday-related or weather-related cancellations.) The run begins promptly at 7:30am and follows a beautiful residential course through Des Peres, Kirkwood, and (for those who run long) Webster Groves. All of the roads traveled have sidewalks and/or wide "bike" lanes regularly populated by runners. The out-and-back course layout allows participants to run any distance between 1 and 13.1 miles. Popular distances include:
- 4 miles | turn around at Kirkwood Park
- 6 miles | turn around at Woodlawn
- 8 miles | turn around at Berry
- 10 miles | turn around at the far end of Algonquin Golf Club
The clubhouse will be open from 7am until 9:15am, during which time it will be attended by a Fleet Feet Outfitter who can answer questions about the run and ring out accessory and apparel purchases, but not perform footwear fittings. They will also safeguard any gear you don't take on your workout. The clubhouse has bathrooms, changing rooms, and space to stretch. At 7:30am the group will safely walk across Manchester Road together to begin the run on Lockett. So as not to impact early-opening Ace Hardware, please park as close as possible to Manchester Road. After the run, consider stopping by our neighbor, The Daily Bread, for coffee and more.
