The Greentree Rotary Ramble

The Greentree Rotary Ramble is a charitable 5k/10k run/walk through the streets of Kirkwood. The proceeds of the race benefit local Kirkwood charities which vary from year to year. The race is certified and administered through Big River Running, and takes place every year the weekend before the Greentree Festival. Every year we change the race theme to match the Greentree Festival's, and we encourage participants to dress up!
