COVID-19 Update

  As you are aware, the state of Illinois has issued a “Stay at Home” order and has banned public events until the end of the month of May. With the uncertainty of when such events will be safe and permitted to resume, and with a desire to allow our participants to still celebrate the 43rd Annual Elgin Valley Fox Trot, we have made the decision to convert the Fox Trot 10 Mile and 5K to a virtual event.


These are obviously extraordinary circumstances and we are very sorry that we cannot continue the traditional race format that so many of us look forward to each spring in Elgin. We understand how disappointing this may be, as many of our runners have trained very hard and are looking forward to participating in this event. But, the safety our runners, volunteers, friends, families, and sponsors is of paramount concern to us. Our goal is to provide a great and safe experience for all.

 

What is the Elgin Valley Fox Trot Virtual Run? If you already registered for the race, you are in the virtual run. If not, registration is still open. We'll ship all of your goodie bag items – short sleeve tech tee-shirt, along with the finisher’s medal, and some extra fun surprise goodies - direct to your door by race date (May 31st). All you need to do is get out there and run your event (10 Mile or 5K) sometime between May 31st and June 14th. Once completed, you simply log onto the Fox Trot Athlinks page (athlinks.com/event/2260) and go to the RESULTS section, enter your time and you can then download a personalized 43rd Annual Elgin Valley Fox Trot Finisher's Certificate.


In addition, for everyone registered we'll send you a special code within the next few weeks for 20% off of the 2020 Halloween Half-Marathon & 5K Chicago, the 2021 F3 Lake Half-Marathon & 5K, plus next year’s 2021 Elgin Valley Fox Trot where we truly cannot wait to celebrate with you on our tentative date of June 13, 2021.


Registration is open for the Virtual Elgin Valley Fox Trot and will remain open until May 31st. In order receive a race shirt and packet by May 31, you must register by May 11, 2020. All who register after that date (up until May 31) will receive their shirt and race packet by June 30, 2020.

Wishing you safe and healthy running!
