ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A new race will be held next month, catering to beginning runners.

Ground Floor Events, LLC is hosting My First 5k! at Tower Grove Park June 30, 2013.

The race was created for new runners to complete their first timed race and has support from local businesses like Sports Authority, Planet Fitness, area Target stores, and Pretzel Boy's.

"Ground Floor Events was founded to provide fun and unique active events that include everyone in our community, regardless of current fitness level or age," said GFE partner, Chris Compton. "Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for people to jump start their new healthy lifestyles."

Some of the proceeds from the race will be donated to Mercy Health Foundation - St. Louis. Red Racks Thrift Stores is also a partner, and will hold donation drives at registration events and at the race.

To sign up for the race, visit the My First 5k! website. Registration is $35.
