CMT unveils members of Great Race Teams

Great_RaceIIIIt’s hard to believe the Great Race is just a little more than a month away. I hope you are all getting pumped for the excitement surrounding May 8. This year’s race will start at the Fortels Pizza Den (7359 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63105) at 4:30 p.m. and culminate at approximately 5:30 p.m. at the Shrewsbury Lansdowne MetroLink Station (on Lansdowne Avenue at River Des Peres Blvd) with the Metro Market event, which will continue until 7 p.m.
