Posted on: 8:48 pm, July 26, 2013, by

An annual race held for seven years at Moline’s Sylvan Island has changed locations for 2013.

The Taming of the Slough will be held at Campbell’s Island in East Moline.

In April of 2013 the Sylvan Island bridge was closed for safety reasons, forcing the organizers of the event to move locations.

The event which encompasses kayaking, biking and running will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

“It’ll be a different feel,” said Nathan Scott. “It’ll be a great opportunity to highlight this park, the bike trail up through Hampton and also Illiniwek Forest Preserve.”
