The GO! St. Louis Mile-by-Mile Marathon™ program is a corporate wellness initiative that encourages employees to get fit by walking or running one mile at a time over a six-week period, to complete a 26.2 mile marathon. The program works collaboratively with local companies to help motivate and engage employees to make fitness and nutrition part of their lives. Depending on a company’s goals, GO! St. Louis will create a specialized program that includes additional fitness activities or appearances from members of the GO! St. Louis faculty, comprised of some of the area’s top fitness and nutrition experts.

GO! St. Louis brings the Mile-by-Mile Marathon directly to the workplace.
Since its debut in 2007, thousands of area employees have accepted the challenge. GO! St. Louis sets the tone of excitement at the Kick-Off Rally on the company’s campus, which culminates in a group walk of the one-mile charted course. Throughout the six-week program, participants track their miles on Training Peaks, an online personal training log, which they will have continued access even upon completion of the program. GO! St. Louis offers four “Lunch & Learn” sessions, presented by GO! St. Louis Faculty of Experts, which include: Proper Footwear & Apparel, Nutrition, Training & Injury Prevention, and Benefits of Fitness. Every participant who completes the 26.2 mile goal receives a finisher medal, t-shirt and certificate at the End Celebration. The GO!
