Run for 21


Sunday, June 7, 2020

In honor of the third copy of the twenty-first chromosome, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis invites you to RUN OR BIKE FOR DOWN SYNDROME- VIRTUALLY!

 The Run for 21 (formerly Relay and Run for 21) celebrates the amazing lives of people with Down syndrome. The race coincides with our largest celebration of the year – Step Up for Down Syndrome. This year, due to unique circumstances, we will be doing everything virtually. All proceeds will benefit the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis and DADS Community Outreach Fund

Participants will choose from a 3.21 mile run (a 5k plus a little extra), a 10k, or a 21 mile bike ride.  Participants of Run for 21 are also invited to join us for the 25th Anniversary Virtual Step Up for Down Syndrome (SUDS)

Race amenities include a race shirt and finisher medal, bib number, access to Step Up for Down Syndrome Virtual Celebration and results managed by Fleet Feet. Runners & Cyclists must register by May 14th to guarentee t-shirt size and will have the option to choose shipping.

Relay and Run for 21 was started by the amazing Marvin Family nine years ago. Thank you so much to the Marvin Family and Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (DADS St. Louis) for their tireless efforts to make the Relay and Run for 21 an amazing event. The DSAGSL is honored to host this run and continue to see it raise awareness for Down syndrome
