Running Central Hosts St. Jude Run

Last year, Marie White watched teams running for St. Jude and knew she wanted Running Central to have its own satellite run.

“I just loved the energy,” Marie said.

After she spoke to Adam White, her husband who owns Running Central, and others, the run became a reality this year when more than 30 runners joined together for 10 legs and 26.2 miles around Peoria.

Originally, the run was supposed to stretch the two-tenths of a mile from Running Central to the finish line, but then grew to a marathon where runners could join and leave whenever they wanted.
