Elgin Valley Fox Trot – May 26, 2018

Why the underwater theme for an on-land event? 

Over the past few years, the City of Elgin has been sharing in the community fun by aligning its summer events’ theme with the annual exhibit at Gail Borden Public Library. This year’s exhibit, open March through August, is “Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss.” So bust out your colorful running gear and get ready for a race through Elgin’s historic neighborhoods, near the city’s deepest waters – the Fox River. What a perfect way to #ExploreElgin.
