9_11 9/11 March to the Arch
“March to the Arch” a moving memorial in remembrance of 9/11. Thank you to all who joined the Gateway Milers during the 9/11 March to the Arch in St. Louis, Mo. This powerful 21 mile (34K) tribute began at the stroke of 9:11 a.m. on Sunday September 11, 2016. We marched in moving memory of that fateful day in 2001 where our nation cried and ground zero was born. This was the fourteenth year for this event but the first with an IVV sanction. Approximately 150 volksporters marched, several completed the entire 21 mile pilgrimage along with six scout troops, two who completed a 10k. An estimated 1000 walkers ended at the St. Louis Arch adding on at the 10 and 5K locations. To continue reading click here.
