Fox Valley Marathon

About this event :

Advocate Dreyer Marathon, Half Marathon, Fall Final 20™

Event Information:

Sunday, September 17 at 7:00 AM – All races will start together. Chip timing and a wave start will insure a congestion-free start.

Packet Pickup: See complete information for our race weekend Expo and Packet Pickup. We are also offering an early packet pickup in Chicago.
There will be no race day packet pickup. Photo ID required.

Gear check: Your goodie bag you receive at the expo will serve as your official gear check bag. There will be convenient drop off and pickup near the race start/finish area.

Race Shirts: All registered runners will receive a long sleeve technical race shirt. Shirts will be size and gender specific.

Finisher Medals: Race specific medals will be given to all race finishers who complete the course within the (6 hour marathon) course closing deadline.

Pace Groups: Pace Groups are a great ‘big race’ feature to help you find other runners with the same race goal, and provide professional pace leaders to help guide you to that goal throughout the race.  They will be back again for the marathon, the half marathon and Fall Final 20™.

Travel: The Fox Valley is 45 miles due west of Chicago, with easy access from Chicago O’Hare, Chicago Midway, and Rockford airports.

There are many hotel options in St. Charles and neighboring Geneva, North Aurora and Aurora. Compare and book your room online.
