The 13th Annual Ferguson Twilight Run was “Excellent, Awesome, Terrific”

The one-mile, 5K, 10K, 10-mile, and inaugural FTR 13.1 races started and finished at the Plaza at 501. Individuals, families, friends, and teams gathered to enjoy the annual event that benefits local non-profits that provide healthy and active programs for North County residents. Even with the weather being hot, participants commented positively. “It was really just so much fun!,” said one race finisher in their survey feedback. Another commented that they “loved the crowd support from the neighborhoods and the route was interesting and fun.”

As in previous years (pre-pandemic), the festivities concluded with a live concert. This year, Top of the World Band, provided the energizing sounds as finishers, volunteers, and attendees celebrated. One attendee commented that “the band was very good. Love having that to listen to after that long run.”

More than 900 registered for the 2022 Ferguson Twilight Run including more than 100 individuals from 20 different states participating virtually; running at their home location and sharing their experience on social media. This year’s beneficiaries were Emerson YMCA, St. Vincent Home for Children, Girls on the Run, and A Red Circle. The profits from the race are equally distributed. Each organization received $2500 for their program. Peak Performance and Presenting Sponsors for this year’s race included Emerson, Negwer Materials, Christian Hospital BJC Healthcare, City of Ferguson and Big River Running. The planning committee thanks the City of Ferguson staff, all of the volunteers, sponsors, and especially the residents for supporting the event.

The 2023 Ferguson Twilight Run is scheduled for May 20, 2023. The committee wishes to hear the thoughts, comments, and suggestions from residents, business owners and other stakeholders as they evaluate the success, impact and future of the event. Visit to take the short survey.
