Starting Location: Fort Belle Fontaine, 13002 Bellefontaine Rd, St. Louis, MO 63138
Parking: Every vehicle will need to stop at the main entrance and check in with the guard on duty before entering the park (there is no cost, simply sign in and they will give you a card - know your license plate number as they will record that). The trail head parking lot is on your left just down from the guard post. There will be limited parking there - ideally we can double up cars if those running long pull in first and then those going shorter or who need to leave park behind them. This could create at least 2 rows if not 3. Other parking can be found further down the paved road scattered around the park all with in a 1/4 of a mile from where we will start, then just meet us at the trail head lot. Please allow time to check in with the guard!
Run Description: 10K = 1 loop / 13.1 = 2 loops / 50K = 3 loops
Everyone will run the same loop which is just shy of 3 miles total in length. We will all start running at the same exact time on this one as we will go about 3/4 of a mile to the base of the Grand Staircase where we will regroup for the large group photo. From there we will then head out via groups to complete the rest of the run. Those in the 10K program will simply run 1 loop around and finish at the parking lot we started from. Those in the 13.1 will run the loop twice and then those in the 50K will run the loop three times total. You may need to add on just a little bit at the end to get the target goal of 3 / 6 / 9 mileage depending on your group and how nice your GPS watch is.
