April 30, 2022



Lace up your sneakers and get ready for the friendliest race on the Fox! Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation is excited to bring back the Fox Trot 5K/10K in-person in 2022! Due to the change at the Fabyan bridges, the route is slightly different than previous years, but Start and Finish lines will still be near the Peg Bond Center and Island Avenue in downtown Batavia. Certified race maps forthcoming.
Early Bird Registration open until 2/28 – Save $5 and T-shirt guaranteed*! *Due to current supply shortages, we will do our best to get sizes requested, but may have to be flexible. We appreciate your cooperation & understanding
Standard Registration March 1 – April 14
Late Registration (+$5) April 15 – Race Day
Student Running Clubs: Many local elementary schools have a running club to prepare for a 5K. Elementary students receive a $5 discount on their registrations.
Kids’ Fun Run: Younger runners not yet ready for a 5K have the option of a 1/4mi or 1 mile fun run for $15, which includes a T-shirt. As with all shirts, sizing and availability will be at the mercy of supply-chain.

On Saturday April 27, 2019, the Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation (BMCF) hosted the 19th Annual Fox Trot 5K & 10K and kids runs at the lovely Batavia Riverwalk. Nearly 200 runners and walkers enjoyed the races just before the untimely winter weather arrived. Overall, the event raised nearly $3000 for area charities and schools.

Bohr Roofing, LLC; and Orangetheory Fitness; and in-kind donors without whom these events could not take place. BMCF would also like to thank Fox River Trail Runners for including us in their 2019 race circuit and all the elementary school and other running clubs who participated with us. Finally thanks to all of the dedicated runners and walkers, many of whom return year after year! The money raised from this event, as well as all of BMCF’s events, are disbursed to local charities and educational organizations serving women, children, and families.
