This event is the second 5K to be held at the national conference of the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) and is being hosted by the Midwestern Region's AMTA student officers. 
The race will take place at Tower Grove Park in St. Louis, Missouri, a short distance from our conference hotel.

All funds raised will go towards student scholarships to support the future of our profession. 

Event details and schedule

The race will begin at 8 p.m. so please plan to arrive by 7:45 for instructions and decorations. The course will close at 10 p.m.

Wear clothes that are comfortable (and warm) and make sure to "decorate" yourself in the glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces provided at the race. You are welcome to provide your own adornments, as well.

All participants will be asked to sign waivers at packet pick-up (for documentation), which will be available near the conference registration table. Onsite registration will also be available.

For those driving, the park entrance closest to the start of the race is just off S Grand Avenue. If you are headed south on S Grand Ave, turn right onto Main Dr into the park. There is street parking along this drive inside the park.

Please feel free to invite your friends!
