The FOLEPI River Trail Classic takes place on the paved River Trail of Illinois, a scenic, mostly downhill, point-to-point run.  Transportation is provided from the Fon du Lac Park District Administration Center, 201 Veterans Drive, East Peoria, to the starting line on Pleasant Hill Road.
The race is open to people of all ages. Dogs are not allowed on the race course.

Age divisions are 13 and younger to 80 and older.
Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female finishers in each age division in the 4-mile run. No awards are presented in the 2-mile walk.

A post-race party will occur at Mickie’s Pizzeria, 1051 E Washington Street. All River Trail Classic finishers will receive pizza, and those age 21 and older will receive a free beer.
