Due to COVID-19, this year’s race will take place over nine days from Saturday, December 12 to Sunday, December 20, which will be the loop of ArtsPartners’ Sculpture Walk in downtown Peoria. The race will begin at the Peoria Riverfront Museum and the route is a little over a mile long. If the participants would like to turn the route into a 5K, they would need to complete the route three times. Participants will be encouraged to email their times and a photo when completing the run to be posted on the race website discoverpeoria.com/santa-cause-run. Those submitting times will be entered for a chance to win one of three $100 gift certificates to a Peoria restaurant of their choice. This year’s race will benefit ArtsPartners of Central Illinois and help fund future Sculpture Walks by ArtsPartners.
