Race Director Steve Hollis has been hard at work planning all of the race day details. Steve has been a Barrington Breakfast Rotary member since 2002. He started the Trick or Treat Trot when he was the Rotary Club President in 2006 & 2007 and says the purpose of the race is to get neighbors together for a fun Halloween themed activity that promotes physical fitness and health. Steve and his brother also own Hollis Brothers Auto Service at 250 E. Main Street in Barrington. “We’ve had our business in town for 40 years and just want to give back to the community for letting us make a living here for all these years.”
