NEW OR TIME-SENSITIVE TOPICS >>>
St. Louis County Parks and Recreation Master Plan Sessions

St. Louis County Police Officer Blake Snyder 

From all of the City officials and residents of Wildwood, we would like to extend our sympathy to Ms. Snyder and her child, and all of his family members and friends, for the passing of this hero. Although no good can come from a life taken in violence, Officer Snyder served the public with respect, compassion, and professionalism, which is a model and example for all public servants to follow. We, here In Wildwood, would like to thank all of the police officers, and their families, for the service they provide in protecting and serving each of us, all day, every day. May God bless them all.

Wildwood Frozen Feet Half Marathon Trail Run   

OK Readers!!! Pay Attention to this One!!

The 7th Annual Wildwood Frozen Feet Half Marathon Trail Run is scheduled for January 21, 2017. This popular run starts and finishes at LaSalle Springs Middle School and covers 13.1 miles of beautiful Wildwood trails! This run has become one of the top rated trail runs in the St. Louis Metro Area and has filled to capacity the last three years. The  race is capped at three hundred (300) participants at the present time. You will not find a better trail running value than the Wildwood Frozen Feet Trail Run!! Organizers wanted to put on a quality trail running event that was challenging, fun, and affordable ….. and that has been accomplished. 

An unbelievable trail run, plenty of food and drink, finisher medals for everyone crossing the finish line, a wonderfully warm and comfortable hooded sweatshirt, and awards to the top three finishers in each of the five year age groups!! The run is doable by runners of any experience level, but will  present a subtle challenge to those wanting to be competitive! Runners will pass aid stations seven (7) times on the course, where water will be available, but if you want/require special needs, come self-contained! January 21, 2017 seems to be a long way off, but registration opened last Thursday and large number of veteran Frozen Feet runners immediately registered!! Needless to say, the event will likely fill long before 2017 even arrives!!!

So, if you are interested, register at your first opportunity. Registration can be done online at http://register.chronotrack.com/r/23865 or go to the Big River Running Company Website. Paper applications are also available and can be mailed to Wildwood City Hall, 16860 Main Street, Wildwood, Missouri 63040. The Wildwood Frozen Feet Half Marathon Trail Run is a great event for those just breaking into trail running or doing their first half marathon. On the flip side, it is a fast, challenging course for the veteran trail runners wanting to be competitive. Put Frozen Feet on your calendar and register now! Questions? Call Gary at 636-458-0440.
