Peoria Keeps the Racers and Whiskey Running

ShaZam Racing has pulled a new event off the shelf. The Whiskeydaddle Races include a Boston-qualifying marathon called The Barrel, a half marathon called The Bottle, a marathon relay called The Bootlegger, a 5K race called The Shot and a kids event called The Skidoo. All races are planned for the October 7 weekend in Peoria.

“Participants can expect Peoria’s history as the whiskey capital of the world to shine brightly through various aspects of this new event, including the opportunity for old-time photographs, turn-of-the-century festival games, barrel-shaped age group awards and a Whiskeydaddler costume contest,” Adam White, race director and co-owner of ShaZam Racing, said.
