The Illinois River is a precious natural resource that helps define Central Illinois. Physically and metaphorically, several bridges unite each side of the river. In cooperation with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, the Illinois Department of Transportation, and the Cities of East Peoria and Peoria; the Illinois Valley Striders is pleased to present the Second Annual Bridge to Bridge Run - a unique four mile running/walking event that features two major bridges. The Bridge to Bridge Run starts on Kumpf Boulevard near the Peoria Civic Center, crosses the Illinois River over the Robert Michel Bridge, tours the new Downtown East Peoria Levee District, returns to Peoria over the Cedar Street Bridge, continues through the Peoria Warehouse District, and finishes inside Peoria Chiefs Stadium, Dozer Park, with a Post-Race Party featuring refreshments and entertainment.


CommUNITY in Motion - the Bridge to Bridge Run is designed to unite the Central Illinois Community and promote physical activity. Whether you walk, jog or run; join us for the Bridge to Bridge Run!
