  • crowd support to cheer you on

Join us and the miles will roll by. You’ll be rewarded with a shirt, a medal, that all-important refueling immediately after the run. You’ll finish inspired and ready for another challenge.

“Very scenic course with great tree-cover to keep the race cool…"
M. I. from Medina, OH

It’s the perfect dress rehearsal for your upcoming marathon.

Run on a flat, fast, shady course through town streets and bike paths along the scenic Fox River. Take advantage of a hassle-free start. Begin the race fresh, and make use of our pace groups.

Fall Final 20

The Fox Valley Marathon and the Fall Final 20™ share the same course thru mile 10, so can share pacers.  After that, Fall Final 20™ groups that break off of the marathon pace groups must self pace. 

Towns, bridges, waterfalls, parks, an authentic Dutch windmill, river scenes, and lots of shade will help keep your mind fresh and your body cool as you click off the miles.

With a unique riverside finish you’ll see and hear the excitement of the crowds for the last mile of the course to pull you through to your strongest finish ever.

Easy spectator access for friends or family to provide any of your custom in-race needs.

Take advantage of the crowd support and extra aid stations as you finish the final 5 miles of the marathon course.

Endurance Award

Not surprisingly, the Fox Valley Marathon Races have a very high number of returning runners each year. We love that and consider every one of our finishers part of the FVM 'family'!

To show our appreciation and in recognition of the dedication and commitment it takes to train and complete our endurance races we give our returning official finishers an additional medal, the Endurance Award.
