"St. Louis' Biggest Office Party"

Think of the Biz Dash as a Thursday night happy hour wrapped around a 5K in Downtown St. Louis. All levels of walkers and runners are encouraged to participate for your “Company Team.” With the main focus being the 5K, the event also includes company tailgate festivities in the World Wide Technology Team Village where participants can enjoy themselves, mingle with other teams 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!"

Team Village Open 5-10pm /// Biz Dash 5K @ 7pm

Health. Wellness. Team Building. Fun.

The Biz Dash is St. Louis’ version of the corporate run that has become widely popular in many cities across the country. The heart of the event is to bring our community together and promote a healthy lifestyle. 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] helps drive employee engagement. When you do events like this, employees feel really good about their company. We just won best place to work, and it's events like these that really create a terrific bond." - Dave Estes, VP - Human Resources, Maritz

Any business in the community including corporations, small businesses, start-ups and everything in between is invited to participate. It’s a great opportunity to get outside, have some fun with your colleagues, and compete against 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.

If your company or organization isn’t participating, you can still register as an individual on the St. Louis Sports Foundation's team to participate in this one-of-a-kind event!

Participants receive an event shirt, event swag item and a free beer
