Thank you - Sponsors

We had 269 runners in the 5K, 10K, and Stroller Divisions, along with a gaggle of Junior Jog and Youth Run participants. It was a beautiful morning for a run and participants in this event raised funds that will support local charities in the Fox Valley area, as well as Batavia schools.

Special thanks to our BMCF Sponsors, and all our sponsors and donors to the Fox Trot event!

We would also like to thank Fox River Trail Runners for including us on their 2018 Race Circuit!


The 17th Annual Fox Trot 5K/10K race held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, was a smashing success and we want to thank all of our wonderful participants who help us to make this event the “friendliest race on the Fox River!”

It took place at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia).  Both the 5K and 10K featured courses along the beautiful Fox River. Kids also joined in on the fun, too!  The Fox Trot featured two non-competitive races designed especially for children.  The Junior Jog, for children in preschool, kindergarten, or first grade is approximately ¼ mile long.  Second through fifth graders were encouraged to try the Youth Run (1 mile).

 5K and 10K Race and Fun for the Whole Family

The 16th Annual Fox Trot 5K and 10K Race took place on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia). The day’s events featured a 5K and a 10K race as well as the Kids’ Fun Runs. Over 300 runners came out to support our mission. The H.C. Storm Chorus started the race off with the singing of the national anthem and Batavia Academy of Dance provided a performance while runners awaited the results of the race.

This race could never have happened without the fantastic support of our sponsors, BMCF volunteers, and the dedicated runners, many of whom return year after year. Thank you to all who participated, volunteered, or supported this race!
