    Come join us at the Spooktacular Second IVS Trick or Trot Fun Run/Walk


    (Click on the cauldron to see what bubbled out on last year's race!)

    What could be better than running through a cemetery on Halloween night?? Trunk or Treating while running through a cemetery on Halloween night!!

    The run/walk will start near the base of the Michael Sonnemaker statue and then wind past the mausoleums and monuments in Springdale.

    (Don't be afraid - all the spooks and goblins are trick-or-treating elsewhere.) Along the way there will be trunk or treat stations to fill your goodie bag!

    There will also be a Virtual Ghosting Trot - for those who prefer to haunt in their own graveyards.


    Runners are encouraged to run in costume and enter the costume contest just before the fun run, in compliance with all CDC social distancing guidelines.

    Costume Categories:

    Best Male Costume, Best Female Costume, Best Couple Costume, Best Group Costume and new this year:

    Best Under 18 Costume!

    The Illinois Valley Striders are hosting a virtual run to honor 9-11. This run will be open to run/walk either 9.11 miles or 9.11 kilometers virtually in an effort to remember those lost on 9-11-2001 and the first responders that we have lost on and since that tragic day. The run can be completed anytime and anywhere from September 4, 2020 through September 13, 2020. The first 50 registrants will get an awesome tube bandanna with the race graphic.  The proceeds from this race will go to Run to Remember and COPS to honor our first responders.  We hope you will join us so that no American will forget the sacrifice and loss on that day.  Registration and/or donation.
