The 20st Annual Fox Trot 5K and 10K in-person race will be held on April 24th, 2021 at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia). Both the 5K and 10K start at 8:00AM and feature courses along the beautiful Fox River. The Fox Trot also features two non-competitive races designed for children. The Junior Jog, for children in preschool through first grade, is approximately ¼ mile long. Second through fifth graders are encouraged to try the Youth Run (1 mile). The kids’ events begin at approximately 8:45AM. Back by popular demand this year is the 5K Stroller Division.

Pre-registration for all events is encouraged.  The first 300 registrants, who register by April 1st, will be guaranteed a men’s or women’s race t-shirt. Medals will be given to the top three overall men and women runners for the 5K and 10K, and medals will go to the 1st place men and women runners in each 10-year age division.  Pre-registration cost for the 5K is $30 and the 10K is $40.

Children who run in the Junior Jog (1/4 mile) or the Youth Run (1 mile) will receive a medal and a goody bag.  There is no charge for the kids’ runs, but a $10 donation is suggested.

In-person registration will also be accepted on race day from 6:30 – 7:40 a.m. just outside the Peg Bond center. Registration fees after April 22nd will be $35 for the 5K and $45 for the 10K. We look forward to seeing you on April 24th for this fun and family-friendly event!

Funds raised through this event will support local charities in the Fox Valley area, as well as Batavia schools.

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.

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!
