Event Description

Join us for the 2nd Annual Wicked Marathon, Half Marathon, 4 Mile and Spooky Sprint!  This event is fun for the whole family and guarantee a wicked good time!   

This event is a USATF Sanctioned event taking place on a USATF Certified course, making it a national qualifier for Boston and other major national and international events!

The course will take you through dedicated running trails (all asphalt and concrete) of the New River Trail System, starting and ending at Rio Vista Park in Peoria - meaning no need for transportation before or after the race just to get back to your car!

Stroller and leashed pet friendly!

Spooky Sprint is an untimed half mile kids run.  All kids will receive a trick or treat bag at check in and will be able to trick or treat along the course from our volunteers!

So bring the whole family out for a wicked good time!
