VS Bridge to Bridge Run
The Toughest 4 Mile Race Between Two Cities
The Bridge to Bridge team is happy to announce that the 2022 event is scheduled for Sept. 5, 2022.
We can’t wait to see you in September!
Since it’s inaugural running in 2012, the Bridge to Bridge 4 mile race has become one of the premier running events in the area.
The run starts on Water Street, outside R C Outfitters (Formerly Running Central; 311 SW Water St, Floor 1, Peoria, Illinois 61602), at 7:00am, goes north to Liberty St. where a left turn takes the route two block up to Adams St, for another left turn south to Kumpf Blvd, and another left turn onto the Bob Michel Bridge, crossing over the Illinois River. Leaving the bridge, the route crosses River Road and enters the East Peoria River Trail to Clock Tower Drive, then crosses the East Peoria Levee District, and returns across the river to Peoria via the Cedar Street Bridge, turns north on Washington St to Walnut St, where the course turns toward the river to Water St, and finishes back at Running Central. Water Stops will be near mile markers 1 and 2, near mile 3 at Washington and Pecan St., 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. Detailed Course maps.
