Elgin Valley Fox Trot – May 25, 2019

Welcome to the 42nd Annual Elgin Valley Fox Trot! This year we’ll be gearing up for summer fun with a throwback to the Woodstock music festival. Join us bright and early May 25, 2019 as we kick off the festivities with a yoga warm-up at 7:00. Following the warm-up, you can participate in the 10-mile, 10K, 5K or 2 mile Walk for a Cause. After your race, you can relax at our post-race party located near the start/finish line. Enjoy live music until 11am with beer, coffee, juice or food available for purchase. Be sure to meet with our event sponsors while you’re there, and pick up some great deals!

Above all, thank you for participating in the Elgin Valley 42nd Fox Trot!

In the event that lightning is to occur or the weather is unsafe to run in, the City will post a message on the website and social media pages.
