The Harvest Moon Run
The Harvest Moon Run is a nighttime 5K run & walk in Eureka, Missouri. A glow run like no other through Historic Route 66 State Park! Whether you’re a runner or a walker, you’ll enjoy the paved course with pathlighters throughout, illuminating your steps as you zip by on your way to the moonlit finish line.
5K participants receive an Energizer headlight to help light the night!
Get Ready. Get Set. GLOW!
Proceeds from the race benefit the Harvest Moon Run Hunger Mission, supporting initiatives like the Eureka-Pacific Elks Lodge Weekend Backpack Food Program and surrounding area food pantries. 1 in 6 of our neighbors struggle with food insecurity.
Together we can nourish many of these households throughout the year.
Your long-sleeved signature HMR t-shirt, Energizer headlight, and Bib Number will be ready for you!
Please support our Hunger Mission by bringing canned & boxed food items (no glass please)!
The Harvest Moon Run is more than a 5K fun run..
Moonies Unite Right From the Start.
Our 5K fun run and walk is a big event for families, friends, and co-workers to experience Route 66 State Park in the Dark!
BBQ & soft drinks are available from the Eureka-Pacific Elks Lodge to help you power up for the big race. All proceeds benefit their Weekend Backpack Food Program.
Eureka Music Center will power up an energized playlist all night long!
The Harvest Moon Run and Midwest Motors are driving out hunger by proudly promoting:
