The St. Louis Sports Commission invites you to participate in the worldwide celebration of Olympic & Paralympic Day! We mark the occasion in a way that only America’s first Olympic city can – with a run/walk around the 1904 Olympic stadium track with Jackie Joyner-Kersee and other St. Louis Olympians and Paralympians. The event is hosted at Washington University’s Francis Olympic Field & Sumers Recreation Center.

Festivities include:

  • Motivational discussion and Q&A with Jackie Joyner-Kersee (approx. 30 minutes)
  • Run/walk with JJK and other Olympians around the track at Francis Olympic Field – site of the 1904 Summer Games and the oldest modern-day Olympic stadium still in active use
  • Registered participants receive a medal commemorating the 1904 Games in St. Louis

The event is free and open to all ages! Pre-registration is encouraged by completing the form below.
