The Fox Valley Fall Final 20™ is a USATF sanctioned event.
Your fall marathon is getting close. It feels like you’ve been training forever. And you still need another long training run. Make it a training run to look forward to.
Your best marathon will result from your best long training run. The flat, shaded bike paths along the scenic Fox River are an ideal setting.
Join us and the miles will roll by. You’ll be rewarded with a shirt, a medal, that all-important refueling immediately after the run. You’ll finish inspired and ready for another challenge.
It’s the perfect dress rehearsal for your upcoming marathon.
Run on a gentle, fast, shady course through town streets and bike paths along the scenic Fox River. Take advantage of a hassle-free start. Begin the race fresh, and make use of our pace groups.
The Fox Valley Marathon and the Fall Final 20™ share the same course thru mile 10, so you can share pacers. After that, Fall Final 20™ groups that break off of the marathon must self pace.
Towns, bridges, waterfalls, parks, an authentic Dutch windmill, river scenes, and lots of shade will help keep your mind fresh and your body cool as you click off the miles.
With a unique riverside finish you’ll see and hear the excitement of the crowds for the last mile of the course to pull you through to your strongest finish ever.
Easy spectator access for friends or family to provide any of your custom in-race needs.
Take advantage of the crowd support and extra aid stations as you finish the final 8 miles of the marathon course.
