Course: Flat and paved, out and back, starting and finishing at Voyageur Park. Runners will be supervised by volunteers at the turn around point (where water is provided) and at various points along the course. The only road crossing is supervised by a crossing guard, and trail monitors keep watch along the course and at the turn-around point. The Fox Point boat launch area is near the 1/4 and 3/4 marks, and restroom facilities are located there.
Awards: The top three boys and the top three girls in each grade level, 3rd-6th, will win gold, silver, and bronze railroad spikes representing the history of the railroad used for 116 years before the development of the Fox River Trail. First place winners of the Fun Run (boy and girl) also win gold spikes.
Other Fun Stuff: - Free root beer and hot dogs (AFTER the race, runners only). Thanks De Pere A&W! - Each runner will receive a cool Fox Trot tee shirt (if pre-registering), a goody bag with coupons for free treats,
and a water bottle with the Fox Trot logo.
- Some lucky runners will win special prizes in a drawing after the run. Gift certificates, gear, cool stuff!
- Music to pump you up!
