The 5k and 10k walks are on city streets and paved bike trails in Edwardsville, IL, recently designated as best city in the state for young families. Edwardsville was first settled in 1805. When Illinois became a territory in 1809, the city's namesake, Ninian Edwards became the first territory governor. Five residents of Edwardsville have since been governor of Illinois.
