Big River Running Company is committed to being a true running and walking community. Part of our mission is to be more than just a running store. We want to be a place where runners and walkers come to socialize, to train, and to learn more about the sport. Our group runs, walks, and speed workouts are a chance for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to do just that. We offer a Monday Evening Run/Walk all year long at both the South City and O'Fallon locations as well as speed sessions on the track during the summer. We also offer as part of our Big River Training Team, Super Sunday Long Runs during the fall in preparation for the GO! St. Louis 10K/5K, the MO' Cowbell Half Marathon and the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon Weekend and again in the spring in preparation for the GO! St. Louis Marathon/Half Marathon in April. For High School Runners we have a Monday Morning Group Run all summer long. All of our group runs are free, but we do have individualized training options for a fee through our personal coaching program.
