Sept. 26--A popular motorcycle charity ride is back on, but with a new location.

A year after organizers canceled the annual High Country Toy Run in Colorado Springs, the event returns to the area on Sunday. It begins 11 a.m. at the Walmart at 4425 Venetucci Blvd. in Fountain.

The event supplies toys to children in El Paso and Teller counties while benefiting Toys for Tots and Santa's Workshop at Fort Carson. The ride ends at Anchors Country Bar, 606 S. Santa Fe Ave.

Participants are asked to donate one new unwrapped toy.

For every year -- but 2015 -since 1988, the toy run took place in Colorado Springs. It was canceled last year because organizers couldn't get a police escort for the expected 1,000 motorcycle riders.

At the time, the city argued that the event required a special event permit because it was open to the public, required exclusive use of city services and the size of the delegation needed an escort.

Organizers said the event in Colorado Springs should be an exception because it started and ended on private property and did not require officials to close city streets.

This year's High Country Toy Run "promises to be the biggest and best toy run ever and we want to invite everyone to participate," according to the event flyer.
