Since it's inaugural running in 2012, the Bridge to Bridge 4 mile race has become one of the more popular events in the area. The 2020 run, because road construction closures and detours , is an out and back over Cedar St Bridge. The race starts on Water Street, outside R C Outfitters and goes south on Washington Street, over the Cedar St. Bridge, does a 180 degree turn on the Edmund St. exit ramp, and then returns back to Peoria over the Cedar Street Bridge. It continues through the Peoria Warehouse Downtown district until finishing back in front of R C Outfitters.
The Illinois Valley Striders are committed to bringing this event back better than ever on Labor Day of 2019.
