On Your Mark, Get Set, Name that Hill!
You’ve heard of Bunker Hill, Heartbreak Hill, Capitol Hill and Beverly Hills, but did you know there is a famous hill right here in St. Louis? The thousands of runners who have participated in the GO! St. Louis Marathon , Half Marathon or Relay, tell the tale about the challenging hill between mile 6.25 and 8, along Olive Street. This year, we are planning a host of special promotions to brand and recognize the challenging hill, in an effort to encourage participants to “embrace the hill” as a fun part of the overall race experience. Runners, St. Louisans and Hill Naming Aficionados can participate by submitting their suggested hill names through email at
or through the Official GO! St. Louis Facebook page. From the submissions, a GO! St. Louis Committee will choose the infamous hill’s new name. The contest starts on August 8 and runs through August 22.
