About This Activity

Race through historic 18th/Vine at the 2.2 Mile Run/Walk. Why 2.2? The distance honors the uniform number and memory of "Buck" O'Neil, Negro Leagues legend and former NLBM Chairman.


Parking will be available in lots on the Southwest corner of 18th & Paseo (near the Paseo YMCA), 18th & Woodland (near old Attucks School).


$22.00 early advanced fee is available through Tuesday, October 22, 2013. This insures your requested shirt size order. $30.00 late online registration ends at NOON on November 8, 2013. Race day registration begins at 7:30 am. Shirt sizes are not guarenteed for late or same day reservations.


Advanced race package pick up is strongly encouraged. Pick up at the NLBM will be open from NOON-6:00 pm on Thursday, November 7, NOON-6:00 pm on Friday, November 8, and 7:45-8:45 am on Saturday, November 9.

Not quite a 5K, but more than a mile, this short, but challenging course is a great way to enjoy a brisk fall morning during the Buck O'Neil Birthday Celebration weekend. Each registered participant gets a great gift package and awards will be presented to top performers in various male and female age group catagories. In addition, you will be entered to win special prizes from the museum. The course route takes you pass historic and scenic landmarks such as Parade Park, Blues Stadium site, and the Paseo YMCA.
