The 3.5 mile route we take downtown stays mostly on the sidewalks and travels a generally flat course. On the occasion when we do go up or down hills, they are short, but noticeable. And those steps in front of the Gateway Arch will be an accomplishment to talk about back home. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about taking steps up the inside of the Arch.
The St. Louis Running Tour takes the approach that the group stays together during the run so that all can hear the information and nobody gets left behind or too far ahead. With multiple stops along the way, comfortably completing the entire 3.5 mile route is very manageable even for beginning runners. But just remember, this IS a “running tour”.
