Join us at the historic Detweiller Park for Illinois’ favorite cross country style race, Detweiller at Dark powered by Saucony!

Following the tremendous success and fantastic participation since our inaugural event, ShaZam Racing is continuing to make this race bigger and better! Last July, we hosted over 1,100 runners from all across the Midwest for one spectacular night of running! What makes this race incredibly unique is that it is on one of the most historic cross country courses in the country and it will be lit up like a baseball diamond at night!

“Each year, we have top tier athletes coming in from all over the Midwest to participate in this electrifying event!” says race director Adam White. “They know this event is unlike any other and we’ve heighted the experience yet again by adding even more lights! This year, in addition to the professional concert grade lighting that we put up at the 2 Mile mark, we’ve added a second lighting structure at the finish line. It’s going to be another incredible year!”

Detweiller at Dark continues to “shed light on type 1 diabetes” by benefiting JDRF. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, policy influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.

Our event will take place this Friday, July 28th, 2015 at Detweiller Park in Peoria, IL. There will be five races taking place throughout the course of the night. The event will host an open men and women race, junior high girls’ race, junior high boys’ race, high school girls’ race, and a high school boys’ race. The open men and women race will begin promptly at 7:00pm.
