Join the Young Friends of the Missouri Botanical Garden for a spring morning fun run.

The Garden is filled with spring color in April, and tulips are the season’s show-stoppers. Tulip Trot invites participants of varying athletic abilities to do something the Garden normally does not encourage—run!

Runners will follow a recommended 5K course, but they will run only for the pleasure of it. No clock, no winners. All participants will receive a running shirt at check-in* and a wristband good for same-day admission through 5 p.m. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden. 

Due to the narrowness of our paths, only event participants will be allowed on Garden grounds during this event. All other attendees may enter through Ridgway Visitor Center at 9 a.m. when the Garden opens to the public.

Don't want to get up that early? Become a virtual runner! Your registration fee will still support the Children's Garden, we mail you your shirt and you don't have to run. Just select "virtual runner" during the registration process.

*Please note that registrations received after April 11 will not be guaranteed a shirt. T-shirts are based on unisex sizes and may run large. Shirts are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Online Registration has closed. Walk-ins will be accepted!


$30 for Garden Members
