Nearly 150 participants will take to the streets of Ste. Genevieve for the Art of Women’s Health 5K Run/Walk. The reason for the event, sponsored by Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital is straightforward—to convey the message that small changes can make a big difference to your health.
For example, walking just three times a week for 30 minutes, can reduce your risk of heart disease by 50%.
The Art of Women's Health 5K coincides with the 4th Friday Art Walk in the downtown historic district. After the 5k, participants are encouraged to roam the historic district where many shops are open late.
There is a $20 entry fee
for the Art of Women’s 5K, and this includes a specially designed t-shirt for the event, wine glass and wine (if over 21). The event will start and end at Main and Jefferson streets. The course will take participants through the historic district where the 4th Friday Art Walk will be taking place. Following the run/walk, participants will first gather at the 109 N. Main Gallery and then can make their way through the downtown area for all the fun.
ONLINE REGISTRATION is now closed, but you may register at the event! Rain won't stop us, however, if there is lightning and thunder, we may delay the event or postpone if weather is severe.
