Trot for Tots

A group of local Peoria citizens have organized the 2nd Annual ‘Trot for Tots’ run. The two-mile fun run will take place just prior to the annual Santa Claus Parade on Friday, November 28, 2008, in Downtown Peoria.
The purpose of the run is to raise awareness and increase participation in the Tri-county area’s Toys for Tots campaign led by the Marines of Company C, 6th Engineer Support Battalion based in Peoria, IL.

Scheduled to start just prior to the Peoria Santa Claus Parade, the oldest continuous Christmas Parade in the Nation, runners will trace the parade route through downtown Peoria along an established 2-mile course before an anticipated crowd of 25,000 to 35,000 spectators.

Sign up today to come be a part of something big! A premier running event to support this year’s Marine Toys for Tots Campaign, the 2nd Annual ‘Trot for Tots’ run.

School Athletic Teams and ROTC programs are encouraged to run as teams. There is no charge for School and ROTC Teams, but we do request that all student runners fill out an entry form signed by their parent or guardian.
