5K Run for Your Beads
No other race is quite as fun, colorful and, well, wacky as the 5K Run for Your Beads during Mardi Gras in St. Louis. Dress in your best purple, green and gold garb as there will be a prize for the runner with the most eye-catching costume.
In true Mardi Gras spirit, pit stops along the race route will be stocked with complimentary beer and Hurricanes (available for runners 21 and older). Catch your breath, take a sip and enjoy the historic scenery of Soulard.
Registration is $30 through January 31, $35 after January 31 and $40 on race day.
