Winterfest 5K

The Gateway Arch Park Foundation hosts the 3rd annual Winterfest 5K, presented by Caleres, which kicks off the Winterfest season in Kiener Plaza.

Experience our hometown national park in a new way. The route includes magnificent views, with a journey past Kiener Plaza and the Old Courthouse and through the beautiful grounds of Gateway Arch National Park. It doesn’t get more “St. Louis” than this!

Participants will receive a medal and t-shirt, and winners will receive special prizes.

Children can also participate in the Kids Fun Run. The Kids Fun Run is a one-mile loop around the Gateway Arch.

Winterfest 5K run/walk for $35; Kids Fun Run for $15.
