Everything’s Better with Bacon!

NEW AS OF MAY 15: This year’s race will be virtual only. For the safety of our employees, volunteers and guests, Unlimited Play will not be hosting the in-person race planned for June 13 at Jake’s Field of Dreams Playground in Wentzville.

Option 1: Thursday, June 11, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Game On Arcade and Axe Throwing, 10 Meadows Circle Drive, Suite 104, Lake St. Louis, MO 63367

Drive-thru packet pickup will be available for runners who reside in the St. Louis metro area (*see guidelines below). Here, you will pick up your runner’s bib, race T-shirt and finisher medal. For your safety and the safety of our volunteers, we ask that you please wear a face mask if you are able and to please stay home if you are feeling unwell.

To request contactless curbside pickup, please call (636) 579-9375 when you arrive and a volunteer will meet you at your vehicle!

Shipping will be offered for runners outside of the greater St. Louis area. While we plan to ship out all packages before race weekend, due to current shipping delays with multiple carriers, we ask for your understanding if your packet arrives later than expected.

*Q: “Am I a local runner?” As a general guideline, we consider those who are within in a one-hour radius of either pickup location to be “local.” We realize this means many of our loyal supporters, volunteers and employees will need to drive 40+ minutes for packet pickup. As a nonprofit organization, we greatly appreciate your efforts to help us save shipping expenses for runners who live out of state and outside of the greater St. Louis and St. Charles areas. Please note you also have the following options:

  1. Carpooling – One friend or family member can pick up multiple packets. All we need are the names of the person(s) you are picking up for. These person(s) do NOT need to be present with you to have their packet picked up!
  2. Paid Shipping – If you are a local runner and cannot attend either packet pickup session (or prefer not to) we will be happy to ship your materials for the additional cost of shipping. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time!
