About the Fox Valley Marathon Races

Join us for the Fox Valley Marathon, Half Marathon and Fall Final 20™ and the Fox Valley 5K! The Fox Valley Marathon Races has been one of the premier fall running events in Chicagoland since 2010.

Combining small race atmosphere with big race amenities, the Fox Valley Marathon is an ideal marathon for both veterans looking for a fast course to qualify for the Boston Marathon as well as first time marathoners looking for an uncrowded, supportive, family-friendly race setting.

Whether you’re looking for a last shot at Boston Qualification, to augment your training for another fall marathon, or for a hassle-free, fun, picturesque and fully supported race day, the four courses wind along flat, tree lined roads and paths overlooking the scenic Fox River.

The Fox Valley Marathon Races are the right races for the right reason for the right person – YOU.  Starting and ending in historic downtown St Charles, IL, the course winds through picturesque Geneva, Batavia, and North Aurora to a spectacular finish across the Fox River that can be seen from over a mile away.  The course offers fantastic viewing spots for families and supporters, as well as frequent and well positioned aid stations that are staffed by the most supportive volunteer teams of any race you’ve run.

Be sure to register early!
