Registration for Garden Gallop is now closed. Walk-in registration will be available at the event, beginning at 6:30 a.m.

Join the Young Friends for a morning fun run or walk through the Missouri Botanical Garden. Runners will follow a recommended course that is approximately five kilometers and designed with one-way traffic in mind. While guests are welcome to time themselves, the fun run will not have official times, and participants may walk or run at their own pace.

Check-in begins at 6:30 a.m.
Run/Walk starts at 7 a.m.

Running must stop at 9 a.m. when the Garden opens to the general public.

Water bottle refill stations are available at check-in and inside select buildings along the course path. 

All participants will receive a reusable tote bag and a light breakfast. 

Due to the narrowness of our paths, only event participants will be allowed on Garden grounds during this event. Strollers are welcome as long as the child remains in the stroller throughout the run.

Event proceeds benefit the sustainability programs of the Garden’s EarthWays Center. 

Garden Gallop is a rain or shine event. 


$30 for Garden Members

$40 for General public

$15 for children (ages 3–12)
