The Illinois Valley Striders are hosting our second annual run to honor 9-11. This run will be open to run/walk 9.11 kilometers in person or virtually in an effort to remember those lost on 9-11-2001 and those first responders that we have lost during and since that tragic day.
The virtual run can be completed anytime and anywhere from September 4, 2021 through September 13, 2021.
The physical race will start at the bottom of Glen Oak Park at 9:11am on Saturday 9/11/21, with a moment of silence beforehand. The race will then follow the Rock Island Trail into the Springdale Cemetery and wind around it’s perimeter, passing the grave of one of Peoria’s own who lost their life on that day.
The proceeds from this race will go to COPS IL to honor our first responders.
