were going to be in STL next weekend for a wedding in Arnold (grandmas house, Fenton (aunt and uncles house) area.
My fience and I are looking to find a place to run 12 miles in our taper for our marathon in 3 weeks. In KC we have an amazing asphalt trail to run on and trying to find something like that to run on. or a 4 mile loop that we can get on.
If you're going to be around Fenton then you could run Grant's Trail which starts in Kirkwood then goes for 8 miles. It's pretty flat and paved with a few spots where you'll have to stop due to traffic lights. It's about a 10min drive from Fenton.
You could also run Castlewood State Park which is kind of close to Fenton too.
If you want a continuous run then head over to Forest Park and run the outer loop which is 6 miles. There will be a few medium hills on this run but not bad at all. I'd say it's about 20-25 mins from Fenton.
If you want hills, then head out to Babler State Park and run the trails there.
