What is the Sun Run?

The Sun Run 5k and 1-mile walk supports the world-class pediatric health care provided every day at SSM Health
Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. We serve more than 200,000 children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.

The Sun Run welcomes runners of all ages, walkers and families to come out and enjoy beautiful Forest Park in the heart of our city. The 5k run features chip-timing from Fleet Feet Sports and the 1-mile offers a casual walk option. Every run / walk registrant will receive the official Sun Run t-shirt. Shirt sizes are not guaranteed for registrations after September 15.

Sun Run sponsorships are available as well, click here for the opportunity packet.

Check back for updates as the route and Runner’s Village entertainment and activities will be added soon!

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support in making the Sun Run a big win for SSM Health Cardinal Glennon kids!
