The Kirkwood Greentree Rotary Ramble is a charitable 5k/10k run/walk through the streets of Kirkwood. The proceeds of the race benefit local Kirkwood charities which vary from year to year. The race is certified and administered through Big River Running, and takes place every year the weekend before the Greentree Festival. Every year we change the race theme to match the Greentree Festival’s, and we encourage participants to dress up!
The Fun Run is a short race that take place about 1 hour after the general race and is for children ages 10 and under. The children start at the general race starting line, run around the block twice, and finish at the big finish line. We do a group warm-up before the race, and we hand out prizes for the best dressed kid at this time (this year’s theme is Rock ‘n Roll).
Parents may run with their child for free, but depending upon their child’s age, many parents choose to cheer from the sidewalk on Geyer Road and then meet their child at the finish line.
Adult volunteers are posted at every corner to guide the children, and there are signs directing them through the course. A police officer stops traffic and oversees their crossing of Geyer Road at both intersections.
