Founder's Day Run

Where: Union, MO
Race type(s): 5k, 10k

Proceeds from the race will benefit the Union R-XI Foundation.

Join us for the 46th Annual Founder’s Day Run presented by the Union R-XI Foundation. Now under new direction, the race is returning to its roots with an evening start during Union’s annual Founder’s Day Festival. Being the oldest and longest-standing road race in Franklin County and one of the oldest in the St. Louis metro area, the Founder’s Day Run has been known to be a tough race. This year will be no different. As you take on the challenging course through the historic county seat just know you’ll be rewarded with a fast, downhill finish. Approximately, the last mile for both the 10K and 5K is downhill.

Come early and bring your family to see what Founder’s Day has to offer. Then after you finish your race grab yourself a FREE beer (21 and over) or drink and stick around and enjoy some music. Founder’s Day is an annual family-friendly event and takes place at the Union City Park. The celebration is sponsored by the Union Parks & Recreation Department and local businesses with the primary goal of bringing our community together to celebrate our great city. The festivities include turtle races, craft vendors, a cornhole tournament, discounted pool admission, food trucks, music, and more.
