Fox Valley Marathon



Start Time: 7:00 AM

It may be hard to believe because the shady, flat, fast river course was hard to match anywhere in the country, and a highlight for 2010 runners.

The marathon course will be USATF certified again this year and the Fox Valley Marathon will again be a certified Boston Qualifier. With the course changes we’re making it should be even faster.

While many runners begged us “Don’t change a thing!”, we have no doubt you’ll love the 2011 changes even more, including…

  • New marathon course highlights: ~ Batavia’s scenic Riverwalk ~ 2 miles of Aurora’s West River Trail
  • More river paths in the full marathon race
  • Elimination of the hill at marathon mile 17 (no animals were hurt in removing the hill)
  • 2.5 more miles of shaded roads at the start to allow runners to spread out before reaching the river path
  • All races see significantly reduced 2-way traffic
  • No path sharing with events other than the FVM races
