It may be a couple of months away but it's good to register early and get it on your running calendar.

This VMH 5K Fun Run/Walk will be on Saturday, May 16, and begins at 9:00 AM.

The race will originate at the Other Place Bar and Grill on Calvary road. Voyageur Bus company has donated their parking lot so people can park for free across the street. This is a family-friendly event and is open to all ages.

Runners are encouraged to register early online that way you just need to show up and run the race. You may fill out the forms and register online, or you can pick up the forms in person at the St. Louis County Historical Society located in the Depot on Michigan Street. You will need to return them with the payment (cash or check) to the St. Louis Historical Society Administrative Office.

If you want to register your team, be sure to give your team name and register each member of the team. For details on how to support this event and to view the fundraising levels, select SPONSOR online.
