Above and Beyond 5K

Sat April 2, 2022 Saint Louis, MO 63131 US Directions


Go Above and Beyond!

5K Run/Walk

Kids get a shirt and medal!

Kids 100 Yard Dash

Open to ages 1 - 12.


Ephesians 3:20 - "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us."

Please join us in the Above and Beyond 5k to honor and celebrate priceless Nancy Simpson. Our walk/run name plays off the Ephesians 3:20 verse
that Nancy loved. It also encapsulates her as a person that went above and beyond for her family, friends, and her students.

The race will benefit the "Granting Dreams Program", a memorial fund set up in Nancy's name. This charity enables Parkway School District K-12 students to attend and learn in educational experiences outside their regular curriculum. Teaching, learning, and helping students were more of Nancy's passions where she went above and beyond. 

The 5k will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 4/2/22. The kids 100 yard dash will follow the walk/run at 10:00 a.m. 

The 5K will start on the trail beside this parking lot on the Weidman Road side of Queeny, and run west on the trail before turning across the road north to do a big loop, and will come back the same way (Course map linked below under Directions). There should be plenty of parking in this main lot, but overflow parking is available in the other lots. 

Packet Pick Up Info

Packet pick up will be at the West County Big River Running store, very close to Queeny Park at 13969 Manchester Rd. It will run from 12:00-6:00 PM on Friday, April 1st. On race day, packet pick up will open an hour before race start at 8:00 AM. We will not being doing race day registration, so please sign up ahead of time! However, race day packet pick up will be located at the new Smith Shelter on the east side of the parking lot, down from the starting line. 

Additional Race Info

- The deadline to be guaranteed a shirt is March 10th, so please sign up early to guarantee your shirt!

- There will also not be any age group awards, just medals for the kiddos in the dash! 

- The course is hilly and mostly on gravel like the Katy Trail, so with the Spring thaw and showers it could be muddy. If you like to run with trail shoes, this might be an opportunity to break them out.
