The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, & Run Marathon® (RRRM) goal is to develop reading-proficient, community-minded and physically fit children in grades K-8 by challenging them to READ 26 books, RIGHT the community with 26 good deeds, and RUN 26.2 miles over a 26 week period.
After 26 weeks of hard work, the program culminates when the students complete their race day goals at our Annual Family Day in Forest Park. Coordinators manage the program entirely leading up to race day. Then on race day students complete the race distance the student is registered for.
Grades K-8 can run will run 1.2 miles on race day to complete the program. This race will be run solely with other RRRM students and have a specific start time outlined closer to the race day (coordinators will let families know more information closer to race day).
Grades 6-8 can complete their program by running the 5K distance. Each student should register here through the RRRM program. Then on race day students will race with the other 5K runners (i.e. they will not run solely with other RRRM students).
