2020 Run for Webster Information
to Register for a 5k, Scavenger Hunt or to purchase a t-shirt click on the "Registration" button above
For obvious reasons, the Run for Webster will be different this year. While we would love to see you in person, the on-going reality of the pandemic means we cannot hold a mass-start 5k run or Pancake Breakfast, as we have in past years.
However, the Run for Webster will continue, and we have an exciting slate of activities for families, kids, parents, runners, walkers, joggers, fans, etc: in short, there is still ‘something for everyone’ at this year’s Run for Webster!
All of our activities are listed below, with dates, times, locations, and other details. Registration for all activities begins on September 1st.
If you just want the T-shirt, you can also buy them at the Registration site.
Family Scavenger Hunt
This Family Friendly activity is on October 17th, from 1PM to 4PM, rain or shine. There is a Scavenger Hunt at each elementary school. The price is $5 per person. On the registration website, enter your preferred elementary school.
For the Scavenger Hunt, Download the free app "GooseChase" (Apple, Android) for scavenger hunt details and clues. Only one family member will need to download GooseChase. You do not need to make an account. You will be playing as a guest that day. Please download it before you come to the event. Once you have arrived at your child's elementary school, we will have volunteers to give you your next set of instructions.
The Scavenger Hunt has a special clue...It is important to wear your sneakers / running shoes to find the prize!

5k Runs & Routes

Crockett Challenge 5K Route: Ivory Crockett Challenge
This is it! The crowning achievement for competitors and Webster Groves School District Foundation supporters alike! In one of the few upsides of this year, we are finally able to offer you a chance to race, run, walk, or stroll through historic North Webster, on a route starting and ending at Ivory Crockett park! This mostly clockwise loop will take you through much of this neighborhood, with sections on Bell, Reasnor, and Almentor before a short section on Rock Hill Road. Re-enter the neighborhood and run the length of Euclid before the challenging Holland hills, down to the low point on Ravine and Lorraine Davis, before starting the mostly uphill last mile up Waymire, south on Cornell, back up Ravine, to the aptly-named Plateau. A short stint on Lithia, Ennis, and Thornton return you to Bell, to the downhill finish.
All Crockett Challenge 5k runners will be entered into a drawing for two $30 gift certificates from the Webster Groves Chamber of Commerce that can be used at our WG community businesses In addition, Crockett Challenge medals will be given to the Overall Female and Overall Male winners.
