Produced by the St. Louis Sports Commission, the Biz Dash 5K brings local businesses and their employees together to celebrate our community, build team camaraderie and promote a healthy, active lifestyle. While the main focus is the 5K run/walk, the event also includes a post-race tailgate party where participants have the chance to enjoy themselves, mingle with other groups and receive recognition for their contributions, race times and company t-shirt designs. With live music, food, drinks and fun, it’s “St. Louis’ Biggest Office Party.”

Any business in our community including corporations, small businesses, start-ups and everything in between is invited to participate in this one-of-a-kind event. It’s a great opportunity to get outside, have some fun with your colleagues, and compete against the other businesses in your industry. Nothing says team bonding like a little friendly competition, right? Think of it as a Thursday night happy hour, a networking opportunity or just a fun activity to do on a week night in downtown St. Louis.

The heart of the Biz Dash is to promote a healthy lifestyle. In other cities like Richmond, Orlando, and Atlanta, this type of event has been widely popular and effective in engaging the community and its business professionals. Studies have shown that the healthier (and happier) the employee, the more productive they are in the workplace thereby attributing to a higher achieving organization. The Biz Dash is all about inclusion so every level of runner or walker is encouraged to participate. It’s going to be an event you don’t want to miss!
