Take Metro to Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Races
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, 10K and 5K Races take place in St. Louis on Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16, and Metro is a great option for you to enjoy all of the races this weekend without worrying about how to navigate around several road closures in midtown, downtown and south St. Louis.
Park at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri or Illinois and take MetroLink to the race. On Saturday, October 15, head to the Civic Center or 8th & Pine MetroLink Stations, which are both just a few blocks away from the 5K starting line at Market and 13th Street. On Sunday, October 16, head to the 8th & Pine MetroLink Station, which is a few blocks northeast of the 10K and Half Marathon starting lines at Market and 10th Street.
