Combining small race atmosphere with big race amenities, the Fox Valley Marathon, Half Marathon, Fall Final 20 and Fox Valley 5K are ideal for both veterans looking for a fast race, as well as first timers looking for an uncrowded, supportive, family-friendly race setting. 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.
“This was my second Fox Valley Marathon and my second BQ there. It has been a wonderful experience each time. This year saw hot temps, but that is the chance that you take with a September marathon.."
