Illinois Valley Striders

  


Since it’s inaugural running in 2012, the Bridge to Bridge 4 mile race has been one of the Premiere Running events in central Illinois.

Bridge to Bridge has a unique venue … no other pedestrian traffic is allowed on the Cedar Street Bridge … a challenging course, wonderful swag, great food (provided by the Olive Garden – Pasta, Meat Balls, Marinara, and the World Famous Olive Garden breadsticks), and good beer, Power Aid and Desani Water (courtesy of Coca Cola Company)!

The 2022 run starts on Water St., outside RC Outfitters (311 Water St) at 7:00 A.M.  The course goes north on Water St and turns left onto Liberty St.  Turning left onto Adams St, the course continues to a left turn onto Kumpf Blvd and then straight onto the Bob Michael Bridge.  Exiting the bridge, the course continues across River Road and enters the River Trail of Illinois.  At Clock Tower Drive, the course turns right and continues on Clock Tower Drive to the entrance ramp to the Cedar Street Bridge.  Exiting the Cedar St Bridge, the course turns right onto Washington St. to a right turn onto Walnut St., then a left turn onto Water St. and to the Finish line in front of RC Outfitters.

Aid stations and water will be near mile one on the River Trail, just before the two mile mark on Clock Tower Drive, and just after the three mile mark at Washington and Pecan Streets, and at the start/finish line.

The Post Race Celebration and Awards will be at the CEFCU Center Stage, 200 N. Water St, just North of the Peoria Riverfront Museum and Caterpillar Visitor Center.
