Course Preview Runs

2020 Course Preview Run Update

We are still hoping to host this year’s 4 training runs, modified to fit social distancing practices with runners safety as a top priority, if our region’s transition into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan has gone safely.  Please see the chart below for tentative dates, times and locations.

Please note the following:

  • Capacity limited to 45 runners, with on-line sign-up.
  • No indoor retail available before and during the early morning hours of the run.
  • Limited washroom and drinking fountain availability along the route – course maps will reflect this.
  • Pace groups may form naturally from within the 45 runners, but no official pacers will be provided.
  • Freezie pops, Gatorade, and water will be available after the run. Additional food may not be.

No Surprises on Race Day!

Throughout the summer, we will be hosting group training runs on the trail where the Fox Valley Marathon Races take place. Come on out, get a glimpse of what you will be running on race day, meet fellow runners, and knock out a long distance run all at once!

All runs start at 6:30 AM.

About the Fox Valley Marathon Races

Combining small race atmosphere with big race amenities, the DuPage Medical Group Fox Valley Marathon, Half Marathon, and Fall Final 20 are ideal for both veterans looking for a fast Boston Qualifier 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, North Aurora, and 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.
