The fun run is held on the streets of Eldridge on July 13 with the entire 4-mile course lined with thousands of luminaries. The Moonlight Chase is the pinnacle event of the Eldridge Summer Festival.  Both Friday and Saturday downtown is filled with food, drink, games, music, and fun for the entire family.

Thousands of people will come out to take part in The Moonlight Chase not only as runners but also as spectators. The supporters show their stuff with decorations and music while cheering the runners along the entire course.
