13 Years! Ferguson Twilight Run

For 13 years, Ferguson Twilight Run has welcomed runners and walkers, family and friends, neighbors, visitors and so many more to enjoy a run for everyone. The annual event is Saturday, May 14 and features one-mile, 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles) and 10-mile distances.

A new race – FTR 13.1 – will offer participants a half-marathon distance by pairing the 5K with the 10-mile. Runners will do the 5K route first, then set off on the 10-mile course.

“We’re thrilled to come back with the full Ferguson Twilight Run experience! There’s a special energy that comes with the runners, walkers, volunteers, and neighbors who join us for the race each year, and we’re thrilled to experience that energy for the 13th year,” said Dwayne T. James, race director.

Ferguson Twilight Run will start and finish at Plaza at 501, at the intersection of Florissant Road and Suburban Avenue.

A Run for Everyone

Ferguson Twilight Run debuted in May 2010 as the first evening race in North St. Louis County. Since the beginning, the run encourages a sense of community while supporting a common interest. Proceeds are donated to nonprofits in north St. Louis County that promote the healthy and sustainable benefits of fitness. To date, more than $100,000 has been given to community organizations through the Donnie White Sr. Memorial Beneficiary Award. The 2022 recipients are A Red Circle, Emerson Family YMCA, Girls on the Run St. Louis Ferguson-Florissant School District, and St. Vincent Home for Children.

Volunteers and Sponsors

Ferguson Twilight Run relies on countless community volunteers to plan and coordinate every aspect of the event – from the planning committee to cheer stations, water stations and road closures, start and finish area, packet pick up, informing neighborhood residents and more – to make it a success.

Ferguson Twilight Run will follow the health and safety guidelines recommended by public health and local government officials. If any changes are necessary, details will be posted online.
